Sea at Prizba beach contaminated with faeces

By  Jun 03, 2020

Dubrovnik-Neretva County warns the public that short-term sea pollution has occurred on Prizba beach on Korcula with fecal waters.

According to the notification of the Public Health Institute of Dubrovnik-Neretva County from June 3rd, during the sea quality survey it was determined that the results of sea analysis for swimming on Prizba beach on Korcula, sampled on June 1st, exceed the limit values for microbiological indicators of interstitial enterococci and Escherichia coli.

In accordance with the Decree on the quality of the bathing sea, sampling of the sea will be repeated until the cessation of pollution. The pollution was reported to the Environmental Protection Inspectorate and other competent inspections.

Since the sea samples on the beach Prizba on Korčula, due to pollution of fecal origin, do not meet the health requirements, it is not recommended to swim there until further notice.
