Monaco responds quickly to new wave of debris

Monaco responds quickly to new wave of debris

By Staff Writer - November 27, 2016

Dechets Port hercule BDA new wave of tree trunks and branches arrived on Friday in the port areas of Monaco following the heavy rains of Thursday.

This time the port of Fontvieille was largely spared since it had been possible to leave some anti-pollution protection in place without totally obstructing maritime navigation. However, Port Hercules was more seriously affected and Monaco Harbour Operations Corporation and the Maritime Affairs Department joined forces to collect all the debris in the harbour.

The Yacht Club of Monaco also carried out its own cleaning operation in the marina, a move that lasted through the weekend. Since more floating tree trunks have been reported outside the harbour mouth, a notice to mariners on the necessity of great caution on all Monegasque waters and throughout the Alpes Maritimes region is regularly being relayed by the CROSS MED agency.

Tree trunks have also been collected from the beach at Larvotto.
