Anse du Rouet

Carry-Le-Rouet, France

English below
Bien que la zone de baignade de la plage de l'Anse du Rouet soit testée pour la qualité de l'eau, la partie ouest qui comprend notamment une base nautique ne l'est pas. Cette partie est pourtant soumise à plusieurs pressions anthropiques avec le dragage de la zone au début de l'hiver qui amène à divers rejets. Le spot accueille surtout des nageurs, plongeurs, et des planches à voile. La plage est accessible aux handicapés, des douches et toilettes sont disponibles, et un parking (payant en été) est situé à proximité.
Plusieurs sources potentielles de pollution sont à mentionner :
- Rejet des stations d'épuration lors des orages
- Ensablement des plages et dragage du port
- Sursaturation de la plage en période estivale

The spot is used by bathers, divers, and windsurfers. It is accessible to disabled persons, and toilets and showers are available. Also, there is a parking lot nearby (paid during summer). Though the bathing area is tested for water quality, it is not the case for the nautical base. The main problem is the port's dredging during winter. Moreover, the supersaturation during summer and the waste water treatment might be explanations for bad water quality.

MONITORING FREQUENCY

Anse du Rouet 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.
