Alluvial quarry project in Bassée

In the early 2000s, Lafarge Granulats France commenced a debate with local players to define a project for operation of a sand quarry in Bassée, Ile de France, at Hermé.  Given the environmental issues already known in this area (with Natura 2000 and National Natural Reserve sites nearby), an ecological survey was first of all carried out over a complete biological cycle on both perimeters.  That was aimed at assessing the ecological sensitivity and identifying the main environmental issues to take into account in defining the project.

Lafarge Granulats France entrusted us with carrying out all the fauna-flora and wetland sections for the regulatory dossiers necessary to obtain the authorisations for starting this operation. The studies were done together with the project leader, which took into consideration all the ecological issues established during the field prospection in order to define its operating perimeters and implement the ERC sequence.
