Base nautique de Fréjus

Frejus, France

English below
Située dans l'est du département du Var, la plage de la République est entourée de la plage des Sablettes à l'est, et du Capitole à l'ouest. Cette plage est très touristique puisqu'elle est située en plein centre de Fréjus. Il sera donc difficile de se stationner. Le kayak, surf, paddle, sont possibles sur ce spot, mais le kite ou la planche à voile seront plutôt pratiqués du côté de Saint-Aygulf.
Les deux ports de plaisance entourant la plage peuvent être une source de dégradation de la qualité de l'eau, ainsi que le système de traitement des eaux usées qui peut être défaillant en cas de fortes pluies.

Located in the Eastern part of the Var department, the beach is in between the beaches of les Sablettes and Capitole. The beach is crowded during summer because it is downtown Fréjus. It is also quite difficult to park. Kayak, surf, and SUP are available on the spot, but kite and windsurf would be better around Saint-Aygulf.
The two ports surrounding the beach and waste water treatment might be explanations for bad water quality, especially after heavy rains

MONITORING FREQUENCY

Base nautique de Fréjus is sampled from January 1st to December 31st

SOURCE INFORMATION

As part of the Watermen Testers program, Surfrider Foundation Europe volunteers monitor recreational marine and freshwater quality at several sites in the region Nouvelle-Aquitaine. The sampling season goes throughout the year, on an irregular basis depending on availability of volunteers. That is why the monitoring frequency selected is "Other" for all the beaches in the region.

Priority is given to places where Watermen Testers suspect a pollution. Before (from 2014 to 2017), samples were collected bi-monthly. According to the European Directive 2006/7/CE, water quality is based on 2 bacteriological parameters: E. coli and enterococcus. Threshold between average and poor water quality :
Freshwater :
Enterococcus  660 CFU/100mL
E. coli : 1800 CFU/100mL
Marine water:
Enteroccocus : 370 CFU/100mL
E. coli: 1000 CFU/100mL

A beach is marked green if the two results (Enterococcus and E. coli) are under European thresholds.
A beach is marked red if one of the two or the two results is/are above the European threshold.
A beach is marked grey when there are no current results or there is no available information.

Special status beaches:
Due to the high frequentation of beaches during the summer and the occurrence of storms, leading to wastewater treatment plant overflows, some beaches are exposed to short term pollutions.
