Lansberg

Saint-Laurent-Du-Var, France

English below
Le long de la très touristique promenade des flots bleus, la plage de Lansberg est très fréquentée l'été. On y trouve notamment un centre nautique proposant de nombreuses activités telles que la planche à voile ou le paddle. Le stationnement est difficile en été en raison de la fréquentation et de la situation géographique de la plage, en plein centre de Saint-Laurent-Du-Var.
La station d'épuration à proximité a souvent causé la fermeture de la plage, et la qualité de l'eau était mauvaise de 2011 à 2016 d'après les analyses de Surfrider.
L'embouchure du fleuve le Var, ainsi que le système de traitement des eaux usées, peuvent donc être des sources sérieuses de dégradation de la qualité de l'eau.

Along the famous Promenade des Flots Bleus, this beach is crowded during summer. You can practice windsurf or SUP at this spot. It may be quite difficult to park because the beach is downtown Saint-Laurent-Du-Var.
The waste water treatment plant near the beach already led to the closure of the beach. From 2011 to 2016, the water quality was bad according to our analyses.
Thus, the mouth of the river le Var and waste water treatment might be explanations for bad water quality, especially after heavy rains

MONITORING FREQUENCY

Lansberg 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.
