    Lhoist Industrie has applied for a permit to deepen its limestone quarry situated on the Gerny Plateau at a place known as “La Boverie” in Rochefort.







    The first consequence of this project will be to dry up Tridaine, a naturally pure spring which supplies free water to the Abbey of Notre-Dame de Saint-Remy as well as to the city of Rochefort. Lhoist plans to use pumps to supply the city and the abbey with water. This however would certainly change the taste of the water and thus of Rochefort Trappist beer, produced by the abbey’s brewery and appreciated throughout the world.







    Rochefort Trappist beer and thus hundreds of direct and indirect jobs connected to the brewery are threatened. Drying up the spring would also destroy the ecosystem which needs this spring water to develop and guarantee the development of the flora and the fauna. Help us save Tridaine Spring and Rochefort Trappist beer by signing this petition!
