Brutal Beach

Six-Fours-Les-Plages, France

English below
Le spot est très prisé des surfeurs et windsurfers lorsque les conditions de vent et de houle sont propices. L'endroit est également très prisé des baigneurs et autres pratiquants d'activités nautiques en saison estivale. Cette plage, la plus grande de la ville, est surveillée l'été et accessible aux personnes à mobilité réduite. Des douches et des toilettes sont disponibles sur la plage.
De 2009 à 2016, les analyses de Surfrider ont montré que l'eau de cette plage était de mauvaise qualité.
Le cours d'eau la Reppe, ainsi que le système de traitement des eaux usées peuvent être des sources de dégradation de la qualité de l'eau, notamment en cas de fortes pluies.

Brutal beach is a famous surf and windsurf spot. It is also crowded by bathers during summer. This beach, the largest of the city, is supervised and accessible to disabled people. Shower and toilets are available on the beach.
The water is sampled at the surf spot. From 2009 to 2016, results from Surfrider's analysis showed that the water quality was bad.
The river la Reppe, and the waste water treatment might be explanations for bad water quality, especially after heavy rains

MONITORING FREQUENCY

Brutal Beach 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.
