Swimming at La Tour d'Auvergne lake

On video !

Thanks to the efforts of the municipality of La Tour d'Auvergne, the lake received the Blue Flag label for the first time in 2009. Since 2013, the label has been awarded to it every year. In 2024, the municipality did not request the renewal of its Blue Flag label. Each year, the Blue Flag recognizes municipalities and marinas, which permanently pursue a policy of research and sustainable application in favor of a quality environment. In this Auvergne lake, swimming is supervised in July and August.
