Safety first before the swim! Today, divers of ‘Plongeurs Professionnels Associé’ checked the swimming zone at Bois de la Cambre for debris on the ground which could pose a risk for swimmers. As you can see, it’s not that deep, but certainly enough for a splash!
In parallel, Bruxelles Environnement does tests of the water quality. This includes the physical parameters like temperature, pH value or oxygen, the turbidity of the water and biological test with samples that are later examined at Brulabo. Brulabo is the official laboratory that does all the water tests of the public swimming pools in Brussels.
