Faced with a significant silting up of the Capesterre port at Marie-Galante, the Guadeloupe County Council needed to carry out dredging maintenance of it to restore a draft acceptable for fishing vessels.
These dredging works, carried out in contact with the marine environment, have been subject to the regulations relating to the environment code.
For this purpose, CREOCEAN was mandated by the Guadeloupe Departmental Council to carry out the preliminary study of sediment characterization and, subsequently, the implementation of the regulatory file on the Water Act.
