A water treatment plant
The community of Saint-Martin and its Water and Sanitation Establishment (EEASM), represented respectively by the President of the Territorial Council, Aline Hanson, and the President of the EEASM, Louis Fleming, laid the foundation stone of the New wastewater treatment plant (STEU) of Quartier d'Orléans, Monday 21 December 2015, next to the head of cabinet of the prefect, Emmanuel Effantin. The 1er Minister William Marlin and the Minister Angel Mayers of Sint Maarten, made the trip of the Dutch part.

Expected by the residents of the district for a long time, this new generation station will require 2 years of work. Funded to 10.4 M € by the European Funds FEDER, 1.5 M € by the National Office of Water and Aquatic Environments (ONEMA), 800000 € by the State and 800000 € by the Collectivity on the development contract State-COM, the new STEU in the Orléans district will be designed for 18 000 equivalent inhabitants, on a biological concept unpublished in the West Indies. It is the concretization, as President Hanson said, of sustainable community-led policy and the will of the executive to build modern and sustainable infrastructures in synergy with the needs of the territory.

In his speech, President Fleming recalled the old-fashioned station, built in 1983, "which no longer corresponds to the needs of the development of the eastern part of the island, nor to the observance of the norms of rejection in the pond To fish that is classified Ramsar ". "This new equipment is therefore part of the many European disputes that provide for the resolution of sanitation problems definitively on the 2016 horizon on all French territory," he said.

Situated very close to the dwellings, the new STEU has been the subject of a thorough reflection for a relevant integration in the landscape in favor of the respect of local residents.

"Thus, this infrastructure is a gateway to a remarkable natural environment: mangroves, bird species, fish and crustaceans ... it will be completely closed, deodorized and soundproofed, without any discomfort for the inhabitants," said Louis Fleming , Before adding that in the long term, this building will be able to receive visitors for didactic purposes: accompanied classes, private visitors in the framework of ecological tourism.

Emmanuel Effantin, stressed "the well-being of residents who reside nearby and the preservation of natural resources through the recovery and reuse of water; Equipment designed to protect biodiversity ".

After the symbolic pose of the 1ère stone, the elected representatives of the community thanked all the partners of this project, the financial contributors such as Europe, Onema and the state, but also the assistant owner de work Safege , And construction companies, not to mention the Conservatory of the Coastal Zone and the Nature Reserve which, through their cooperation, contributed to the realization of this ecological project.
