Several years ago, the Huveaune river was used as a sewer due to a lack of outlets for the networks associated with the used water purification plant at Cortiou. The water of the Huveaune, which flows into the Prado, constituted the main cause of pollution on Prado Beach. Another large outlet was therefore created close to Boulevard Michelot, overtaking the first one and coming out at Cortiou. The water has thus been diverted, and the Huveaune is only used in cases of severe flooding.
