Anse de l'arene

Cassis, France

English below
Cette plage de galets est assez peu fréquentée car un peu excentrée. Ce spot est resté sauvage et est reconnu pour la plongée. Un petit parking gratuit est présent à proximité de la plage. La plage n'est pas accessible aux handicapés car il faut emprunter un escalier pour s'y rendre.
Les bateaux au mouillage, le système de traitement des eaux usées, ainsi que les exutoires pluviaux peuvent être des sources de dégradation de la qualité de l'eau.

This pebbly beach is quite unknown because a bit far away from Cassis downtown. It is a wild spot, famous for scuba diving. A small free parking lot is located nearby. You have to take stairs to go to the beach.
Boats at anchor, the waste water treatment, and rain water network might be explanations for a bad water quality.

MONITORING FREQUENCY

Anse de l'arene 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.
