These openings concern in particular Rivesaltes, Armentières, Brignoles, Meudon, Nîmes, Malestroit, Montauban, Grandville, Limoges, Versailles, the Pailleron swimming pool in Paris and Limoges where the vice-president of the Metropolis said he was “ready to go to court”. At the beginning of September, Vert Marine had decided to close these swimming pools due to the explosion in energy prices.

In most cases, the reopening was the result of an agreement between the local authority and Vert Marine: either the local authority agreed to cover part of the additional cost due to the explosion in energy bills, or the community has undertaken to allow Vert Marine to benefit from lower tariffs within the framework of the public service delegation.

The other municipalities whose swimming pools have not reopened are in negotiation, or have taken the matter to court, such as the town of Nogent-le-Rotrou, in Eure-et-Loir.
