Since this Saturday, the large beach of Sables-d'Olonne was prohibited for swimming. And for cause traces of hydrocarbon were discovered in the water. To avoid any risk, swimming was prohibited until today 10:30 am (to be renewed) by a temporary stop prohibiting bathing and the presence of the purple flag.
Samples were taken to estimate the quality of the water and its harmfulness, in particular byARS (the Regional Health Agency). It is the result of these analyzes which then determines whether the swimming ban should be renewed or not. It turns out that the analyzes showed a water quality meeting the standard, the results are consistent.
Bathers can therefore resume their activity serenely. However, we do not know more about the origin of the traces of hydrocarbon. In any case, no source speaks of it.
The purple flag has appeared recently. Its purpose is to indicate a bathing ban and it is hoisted at the mayor's request for “suspicion of pollution”. With the increasing pollution on our Earth, we are not immune from not seeing it again soon.
