Pourquoi la gestion des milieux aquatiques ?

Des pressions qui s’exercent sur les milieux aquatiques sont de plus en plus nombreuses : pollutions de toutes natures (dysfonctionnement des systèmes d’assainissement non collectifs, utilisation de pesticides et herbicides, rejets directs dans le milieu naturels…), imperméabilisation des sols réduisant les infiltrations, dégradation de la ripisylve (végétation des bords de berges), etc.

Une mosaïque de dysfonctionnements

De nombreuses mesures sont donc prises pour réduire ou prévenir ces dégradations. Nous pouvons citer :

Le contrat de rivière initié par la Communauté de Communes est un des outils financiers et opérationnels qui permet d’atteindre les objectifs de bon état fixés par ces différentes règlementations et programmes de mesures. Mais les gestes civiques de chacun sont aussi indispensables.

River works: Action B4 of the Rivières Contract
After a first phase of work carried out in 2015, the CCCP carries out a second phase of work on the upstream sectors of Caramy and Issole.
The work is carried out from downstream to upstream. For Caramy, they will start this summer at the level of the D43 bridge in the commune of Brignoles and will finish at Mazaugues, 23 km. Concerning Issole, the works will be carried out from Sainte Anastasie to Mazaugues.
The purpose of this work is to regenerate the riverbank, regulate invasive species and restore the hydraulic capacity of the minor bed. The collection of waste is systematic. All anthropogenic waste (picnic remains, scrap metal, tires, water heaters ...) are removed and landfilled. The removal of natural jams is not systematic, some do not present a risk during flood and are veritable ecological niches for the ichtyofaune and the macro invertebrate fauna. The jams constituted of waste, wrecks, container ... are dismantled and dumped.
Let us not forget that there are no rivers in good ecological condition without riparian. It is essential in the ecosystem of the river, it filters out runoff, limits the warming of the waters by its shade, offers the lodging and cover to many animal species. It is often the only continuous afforestation in our agricultural plain.

History of our interventions rivers

Work in rivers (slices 2 to 5 of the river maintenance and restoration program)

2015: works on the Caramy downstream and Issole downstream (tranche n ° 1 of the program of maintenance and restoration work)

20/08/2014: prefectoral decree declaring general interest for Issole's maintenance work
September 2014: launch of the public works contract
3rd quarter 2014: start of restoration work on Caramy and Issole (tranche 1)

Elaboration of a second maintenance program for Caramy and Issole. This 2nd program aims to take into account the rivers in their entirety.

2006 to 2011

11/01/2012: Declaration of general interest of Caramy
1st five-year program of work on priority sectors of Caramy and Issole called "Plan River". The work amounted to 120 110 € HT. In total 57250 meters of linear have been maintained. This plan also included maintenance of the Cassole.

Goals :
- Improve the state of plant formations
- Preserving natural environments and the diversity of aquatic environments
- Control the flow conditions in the sectors presenting material and human stakes
- Target a valorization of the watercourse
- Improve the perception of the watercourse

  • Procedure for the Declaration of General Interest and initiation of the public inquiry.    
  • Business Consulting    
  • Study of the Cassole, for the establishment of a regime of restoration, maintenance and development of the riparian
