Water discharge regs?

Does anyone know where I can find the French regulations about discharging swimming pool water please.

In French is good because it's to show to a neighbour..

Looks like they should ask for local regs and perhaps not do it now.

I don't think that is quite wht I'm looking for Idun, but ta all the same. I need the law on it and may well have to resort to asking at our Mairie? That shouldn't be a problem as we get on very well with the Maire and the staff.

I thought that vidanger was to drain, or empty fluid. And I did say they should ask about local regs, ie best to ask.



No idea what would happen if one had a fosse system though, for all we had a fosse septique ours was linked to the community drains, I'd forgotten that not every one has this system.

Don't know about regs, sorry, but a note on how our pool is emptied.

We live in a apartment building with a pool, but no way was built in to drain it. The first two years it was discharged by Desjoyaux into our park, which flooded, and then went into the road running alongside it. In the middle of emptying it the second year a stop was placed on it by the police, as it was a nuisance to drivers, and wasn't allowed to run into the drains. The rest of that discharge was achieved hiring a water tanker to drain the water into, and this has had to be done each year since, although we now use an independent company.

It seems mad that a large company can build a swimming pool with no sensible way of emptying it! Hope you find what you're looking for.

If it was the des-joyoo bunch that built it then I'm not surprised at all that they didn't think beyond the cash for chucking it in.

Where's that TP when he's needed? Probably on an expensive round the world cruise Whistles [Www]Devil [6]
