EEASM: Work in progress on the sewerage network, Orient Bay beach 


The Water and Sanitation Establishment of Saint-Martin (EEASM) informs the population that work began on Monday, January 24, on the beach of Orient Bay, in its northern part, near the hotel Mont Vernon.

The intervention teams will replace 800 meters of sewage pipes, from the Mont Vernon hotel to the car park of the “Kkô Beach” and “Coco Beach” restaurants. The pipes will be assembled around the edge of the beach first, before being buried.

The work will take place until the end of February, in order to avoid any disturbance with regard to the laying and birth of sea turtles, which are usually observed from March to December in the bay.

This is the last section to be replaced on the 4km of discharge pipes that ensure the transfer of wastewater from the districts of Espérance, Hope Estate, Cul-de-Sac, Mont Vernon and Orient Bay, with a view to their purification. at the Quartier d'Orléans station. Its resizing is essential to meet the growing sanitation needs linked to the development of the territory. Eventually, it will also make it possible to transfer effluent from other districts, including Grand-Case and Savane, to the treatment plant.

This work is part of a €4 program entitled "Transfer of effluents from Grand-Case to the STEU in Quartier d'Orléans", co-financed by the European Union within the framework of the ERDF, as well as by the French Office for Biodiversity (OFB) and EEASM.

The EEASM thanks the entire population as well as the local actors for their support in this process aimed at improving the health and environmental situation of the island.
