Le Jaï

Marignane, France

Le site du Jaï est situé sur la commune de Marignane, au niveau du cordon séparant l’étang de Bolmon de l’étang de Berre, non loin de l’aéroport de Marignane. Au coeur d’une zone industrielle des Bouches-du-Rhône, les pratiquants de kitesurf et windsurf trouvent sur ce spot les conditions idéales pour sortir les voiles. Cette zone est reconnue comme une zone officielle et soumise à des règles de bonne pratique. Le club nautique propose aussi du kayak, et il est possible de pêcher au niveau du port du Jaï. Une zone de baignade se trouve au nord de la plage.
Le système de traitement des eaux usées ainsi que le réseau d'eaux pluviales peuvent être des sources de dégradation de la qualité de l'eau.

The spot is located in between two ponds : Bolmon and Berre. It is in an industrial area of Marignane, close to the airport. It is a famous spot for kitesurf and windsurf. You can also kayak, fish (around the port), and there is a bathing area at the north of the beach.
The waste water treatment and the rain water network might be explanations for a bad water quality.

MONITORING FREQUENCY

Le Jaï 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.
