Provence & Côte d'Azur: Beaches closed due to water pollution
Red flags go up in Saint Laurent Du Var
Mayor of Saint Laurent Du Var said to local media France 3, "We are looking for the source... I believe it may have come from a nearby treatment plant."
The red flags were raised when recent studies of the water quality revealed traces of the bacteria. Fresh investigations are underway but for now Cousteau and Lansberg beaches will remain closed to bathers until results reach a satisfactory standard.
