The sea reclamation project at Portier continues in its early stages with further moves to protect the environment and the local habitat. While the first transportation and transplanting of protected species took place up until April, work continues to move any polluted materials to the Envisan treatment centre in Seyne-sur-Mer. Other unpolluted sediments are being moved into Monaco’s territorial waters.
“From the point of view of the marine environment, sediment dredging is a delicate operation,” said Jean-Luc Nguyen, Director of Urbanisation at Sea. He added that the resulting sedimentation must be closely monitored.
A few days ago, the work was not progressing satisfactorily, and dredging was temporarily stopped on the Fairmont side.
On Wednesday, August 9, the current changed and sediment was carried beyond the dredging zone, forcing a temporary halt in work. The project continues with extreme sensitivity for the environment. Complete cleaning will be carried out once the marine infrastructure is completed.
