Cleaning algae sargasses
The Community of Saint-Martin informs the residents of the area of Cul de Sac that the Environment Department is currently proceeding (from Wednesday 24 September 2014) to the collection of the sargas algae in the area of the landing stage of Cul de Sac.
This cleaning will make it possible to clean up the area, impacted since August by these algae conveyed by the sea currents from the Sargasso Sea.
Health effects such as eye irritation, irritation of the respiratory tract, nausea, headache may occur in case of exposure. It is therefore advisable for sensitive people not to frequent impacted sites.
The Community of Saint-Martin thanks you for your understanding.
