Korcula beach polluted with faeces – swimming prohibited

Written by  Sep 01, 2022

Pollution of the sea by feces, more precisely by the bacteria Escherichia coli, was recorded at the “Ispod zidina” beach on Korčula, which is why it is not recommended to swim there until further notice, the Dubrovnik-Neretva County reported on Thursday.

Pollution with feces, by sampling the sea for swimming, was determined on Wednesday by the county Institute of Public Health.

"It was determined that the results of the analysis exceed the limit values for the microbiological indicator of Escherichia coli," the County states.

The sampling of the sea will be repeated until the pollution stops, and official signs prohibiting swimming will be placed.
