Clean up the pond and restore biodiversity

#HERAULT –For decades, the seabed of the Thau lagoon has seen disused pleasure boats and macro-waste (tyres, various plastics…) piling up one after the other. This Tuesday, February 13, Sète agglopôle Méditerranée presented an experimental depollution and ecological restoration project in the Bordelaise area, in Frontignan. In total, around thirty wrecks are located in this sector of the Natura 2000 network, classified as a Marine Protected Area (MPA). Some for the better, serving and sheltering ecosystems for underwater flora and fauna. Others (almost) for the worse, by simply polluting a diving spot recognized for its exceptional biodiversity of seahorses, mother-of-pearl shells or sea slugs. A whole methodology had to be created for "allowing the identification of wrecks to be extracted and those to be left in the water". Fifteen of them, mainly located along the bank and along the pontoon, will leave the pond by next Friday.

Markets in a thousand pieces

#BEZIERS – For at least a month, companies will destroy everything inside the Béziers halls and in the basement ground and evacuate everything that remains of the old stalls of traders and artisans. The makeover of the building began this Monday, February 12 and will last eight months. The total cost of this extensive renovation is estimated at 16 million euros. "Yes, it cost more than expected, because the construction site is progressing more quickly and the ;rsquo;we are facing more significant damage, the metal buried in the ground is much more deteriorated than we imagined", explained the mayor of the city, Robert Ménard.
