Plage des Bains Militaires

Nice, France

English below
A Nice, c'est bien sûr au célèbre spot de Brice de Nice que Surfrider fait ses prélèvements. En plus d'être très fréquenté par les niçois qui profitent de cette petite plage de galets, de nombreux clubs nautiques organisent des activités non loin de la zone de prélèvement : les clubs de voile du port sortent lorsque le vent le permet et les nageurs du cercle des nageurs de Nice aiment s'entraîner à proximité. La plage est non fumeur.
Le port à proximité peut 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.

Surfrider decided to sample water quality where the French movie "Brice de Nice" was shot. The peddle beach is crowded during summer. Moreover, the sailing and swimming clubs practice at this spot. It is a non smoking beach.
The port and waste water treatment might be explanations for bad water quality, especially after heavy rains.

MONITORING FREQUENCY

Plage des Bains Militaires 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.
