Bibione is the only seaside resort of the Region Veneto to be awarded with the Blue Flag for its shore and sea-water quality, as well as for the high standard services it offers and for its awareness to environmental education.
Bibione received this award for the first time in 1996 on the basis of precise quality criteria, among which:
- the guarantee of clean sea-waters, thanks to the good functioning of purification plants and the absence of industrial or sewage discharges near the bathing areas;
- the drawing up of emergency plans to cope with pollution accidents and the keeping of the waters analysis at the disposal of the bodies in charge of the controls;
- the offer of a clean beach equipped with up-to-date sanitary facilities and facilitated entries for disabled persons;
- the promotion of the respect for environment with the protection of the green areas, the carrying out of cycle tracks and pedestrian zones, the differentiated waste collection.
The Blue Flag was founded in 1987 by FEE a no profit organisation committed in environmental protection aiming at the evaluation of those areas where natural resources are protected.
