(a) Monthly average of the last 46 years (1969-2014).
(b) The section of the Loire that flows near the plant falls within three protected areas: - SIC - FR8301020: Vallée Alluviale de la Loire (left bank) - SIC - FR2600967: Vallée de la Loire entre Devay et Digoin (right bank) - ZPS - FR2612002: Vallée de la Loire de Iguerande à Decize. In this context, the river is an important environmental resource for the local community, providing the water supply for the area’s agriculture and grazing land.
(c) There is a high level of biodiversity in the stretch of the Loire near the plant (see also page 179). According to official data from the Natura 2000 network, the area surrounding the Loire boasts 27 species of interest at EU level, of which 16 are included in Annex II of the Habitats Directive 92/43/EEC; one of these, the European eel (Anguilla anguilla), is listed as Critically Endangered (CR) by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Other important species include the European pond turtle (Emys orbicularis) and the Eurasian beaver (Castor fiber).
