Invasion of brown algae: COM uses backhoe loaders for cleaning

To respond to the large invasion of brown algae that ran aground on the northeast coast of the island, the community of Saint-Martin and the prefecture held a meeting on Tuesday 18 July 2017, in the presence of Prefect Anne Laubies and Territorial Councilor Pascale Laborde, in charge of the Environment Committee, to organize the removal of algae.
Concerned about the impact of this pollution on residential and tourist areas, and in particular on the operations of directly impacted businesses, President Daniel Gibbs and his majority wished to work in close collaboration with the prefect Anne Laubies and his services, Objective to act in the best possible way, faced with a recurrent and hardly controllable phenomenon, against which there is no miracle solution.
Since 2015, the 20 brigadiers of the green brigade of the Center Symphorien d'Insertion intervene for the cleaning of the exposed beaches, following safety rules and a collection plan prepared by the Direction of the Environment and the Environment of the Community . The brigadiers are working on the ground right now.
The community and the state have decided to extend this manual collection device and increase the means of collection. A new call for applications for the collection of algae and the cleaning of the public domain will soon be launched in this objective.
Even if the Environment and Public Health are the competences of the State, President Gibbs wished to respond to the emergency, involving a company and his mechanical shovels in the bay of Cul de Sac and that of the Galion. The company will work as much as necessary on these two beaches and on other impacted beaches.
The objective is to go as far as possible into the sea to recover the algae. Mechanical shovels then bring the algae along the coast to be picked up by the green brigade and transported to the Grandes Cayes ecosite for drying and recycling in compost.
The community of Saint-Martin is aware of the severe nuisance caused by the stranding of these algae and is acting with its own means on the cleaning of the most affected coastal areas. The first effects of this intensive cleaning should produce results, knowing that the stranding of algae is unfortunately not locally controllable.
