Saving Water this Summer
The Maire of Argelès, Antoine Parra, validated the proposal to remove 10 fresh water showers from the 7km beach front: a return to 100% natural swimming.
Between June and September 2018, nearly 8 million litres of potential drinking water flowed through the town’s beach showers, with a further 2 million litres in Torreilles.
Given the serious risk of a drought during the summer months, the decision was taken to restore water to its primary function: drinking.
The taps will be free to use at the 6 lifeguard stations along the beach in Argelès and strategically placed along the beach in Torreilles.
