#GRAU-DU-ROI – From now on, the leisure activity of angling is prohibited in Grau-du-Roi at the level of the shipping channel and in the fishing port.

Vacation offered to affected families in the North

#GARD –A few months ago, while the rains were ravaging the territory of Blendecques, Olinda and Frédéric Amsaleg, owners of a campsite in Anduze, in the Gard, closely followed this story and decided to mobilize to offer victims one week of vacation. Last weekend, the Hamnouche family – Barrois, like the 27 others, packed his bags last weekend in one of the mobile homes at the Bel Été campsite. Between walks, swimming, and aperitifs, the Blendecquois came to take a breather. "Here, I have a kitchen. At home, I have nothing left…", testifies a young woman. "When we see all this, we say to ourselves: it’s won. Especially when we know what they suffered", observes, moved, Olinda Amsaleg.

Today’s number: 40

#SETE –This is the age of the gantry crane in the port of Sète, which is being dismantled piece by piece. This 450-ton, 60-metre-high machine unloaded ships of their goods. During its lifetime, it will have carried out some 300,000 operations. But it is now too old. “Since our new gantry, which arrived in 2011, can do it and we have the support of our three mobile cranes, we have launched a call for tenders to dismantle the other one”, explains David Liard, director of the EPR Port Sud de France.

Water: a start-up innovates against pollution

#HERAULT –Yasmine Er-Rouyas and Antoine Revardeau share their commitment to the planet, which led to the creation of Pluvia’Tech. Objective: to fight against marine pollution by limiting the infiltration of urban waste into waterways. "Our idea was to create an ecological filtering system to be affixed to the rain plates of cities because 80% of marine pollution comes from terrestrial sources", explains Yasmine. With diplomas in hand, Yasmine and Antoine developed their filter basket by collecting small mesh bags from local oyster farmers, washing them and transforming them into baskets. Yasmine and Antoine joined the Gigamed nursery at the same time and approached local communities. Since March, 40 baskets have been tested in Bessan, Mèze, Balaruc-les-Bains, Frontignan and Sète. Results: cigarette butts, plastics, papers… More than 600 liters of macro waste are collected. "This year, we are going to install around a hundred baskets to be placed in the most touristy areas of our region", rejoice the young entrepreneurs.
