The Regional Health Agency confirms the good quality of water in Mende.

The Regional Health Agency (ARS) confirms the good quality of water intended for human consumption in Mende. The region, like Lozère, were alerted last fall of a potential risk linked to the quality of water intended for human consumption.

Thus, the ARS has carried out analyzes which reveal very good results. Mayor Laurent Suau therefore wants to reassure the population. Indeed, the regulations relating to the quality of water intended for human consumption have integrated new parameters into the health control of water intended for human consumption.

New integrated components

Among these new compounds to look for are, from January 1, 2026, poly and perfluorinated alkyl compounds (PFAS). The ARS Occitanie has decided to carry out, starting this year, a campaign of sampling and exploratory analyzes relating in particular to the twenty PFAS provided for in the regulations. Of the nineteen samples taken throughout the department, none exceeded the limit values.

For the Cœur de Lozère community of communes, samples were taken from Mende, Barjac and Saint-Bauzile (les Fonts). On these sites, analyzes show that on average, out of the sum of twenty perfluoroalkyl substances, the measurements are fifty times lower than the limit. Confirmation is thus made of the good quality of the water in Mende, according to official channels.
