Several environmental defense associations had attacked prefectural decrees authorizing the construction and filling of 16 "


" reserves - including that of Sainte-Soline - which must be built in this department, as well as Vienne and Charente- Maritime neighbors.

However, part of this procedure remains pending before the Administrative Court of Appeal of Bordeaux, where the applicants are contesting a previous judgment of the court of Poitiers.
