According to a report published by the Paris region and mayor's office, analysis shows the water does 'not meet the standards' set for the 2024 Olympic Games' open-water events, citing the presence of two kinds of fecal bacteria, including E. Coli.


If the river is too polluted when the Olympics kick off, plan B is to postpone the open-water swimming events for a few days – not to move them to a new location.
