Paris 2024 insists on open water in the Seine and says it is key to its clean-up plan

Despite the complications of the recent heavy rains, Swimming in the Seine River remains a plan for the Paris Olympics after investing 1.5 billion dollars to improve water quality. This is the constant insistence of the organization.

“There is no reason to doubt”the executive of the International Olympic Committee said on Thursday Christophe Dube in an information session. “We are sure we will swim in the Seine this summer,” he claimed.

Swimmers and triathletes are set to immerse themselves in the purified waters after the opening of the Olympic Games on July 26. French President Emmanuel Macron and Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo have promised to soak and show their citizens and visiting athletes that they are well all.

The key to cleaning is dig a large reservoir next to the Austerlitz train station to collect excess rainwater. This prevents bacteria-laden waste from entering the river.

Heavy rain that flooded old sewers in Paris prevented some test events for the Olympics from taking place in August. Open water, without going any further, can no longer hold their World Cup in the waters of Paris. However, the organization insisted that the matter was under control and that there was no danger during the Olympic event.
