Field study to improve the service of water

SAUR Saint Martin is launching a listening campaign for users of water and sanitation services to gather information from users and optimize the water service in Saint-Martin.

14 listening agentsSAUR, with badge and letter of accreditation, are deployed in different neighborhoods of the island for four to five months and go out to meet citizens and businesses to learn about the operation of the service of the water in the houses. Administrators are invited to answer the questions of the agents of listening on their own use of the water, that they are connected to the mains water or connected to a tank of recovery of rainwater. People connected to the drinking water system will be asked to submit a water bill to enable the listening agents to complete the sheet used for this study.

This field study conducted by SAUR Saint Martin will allow the new delegate to better understand its customers to better meet its expectations. It will also enable the Saint Martin Water and Sanitation Authority (EEASM) to better identify areas with a connection or supply problem and areas requiring an extension of the existing network.

In the long term, it is for the community, the EEASM and their service provider SAUR Saint-Martin to improve the service of distribution of drinking water in Saint-Martin and to begin the work necessary to dimension the networks.

The Community sets up the first psychotechnical tests for drivers in Saint Martin

In July 2018, on a favorable opinion of the Territorial Commission of Road Safety, the Community of Saint-Martin granted an approval for the organization and the animation of courses of awareness to the road safety. Thanks to the actions carried out by the road safety awareness center CSSR Esclapez Sécurité Routière Interventions (ESRI), the Saint-Martin Collectivité now has on its territory courses necessary for the management of drivers' files, such as:

Psychotechnical tests for drivers in breach, suspension or cancellation of driving license
Drivers' points recovery courses for drivers registered in the National Register and with a national driver's license (pink)
Sessions of initial and continuous training in the medical control of drivers for general practitioners wishing to participate medical commissions
Various road safety awareness courses

As such, the 1er session of psychotechnical tests will be organized from the 18 February 2019, in the presence of an approved psychologist. The drivers concerned are asked to contact the territorial service of STTC driving licenses, which is located in the community's annex (former school of the Bord-de-Mer), in order to retrieve their convocation. A dozen candidates are expected during this first test session held in the premises of the EVANYA social driving school, at the 1 floor of the Guillaume Llobregat building in Concordia.

Warning: To be able to take the psychotechnical tests, the drivers must be in possession of the summons of the STTC of the Collectivité, in charge of the management of the driving records and the issue of the driving licenses.

Note: in addition to the medical examination resulting from the medical check of the driving aptitude, the psychotechnical examination is made obligatory in case of application for a driving license, after cancellation or invalidation or after an involuntary attack on the integrity of a person with total incapacity for work. The conclusions of the psychotechnical test complete the medical examination carried out with a medical doctor and make it possible to enlighten the opinion of the medical commission or the designated medical doctor. The drivers are invited to go to this compulsory psychotechnical control, in accordance with the summons delivered by the territorial service of STTC driving titles of the Collectivité de Saint-Martin.
