Lauren Simmonds

As Morski writes on the 3rd of July, 2019, according to the Program for the determination of sea quality at the seaside beaches of Dubrovnik-Neretva County for 2019, the Public Health Institute of Dubrovnik-Neretva County performed its third regular sea survey on 118 beaches during the period from the 17th to the 26th of June, 2019.

On 117 of Dubrovnik-Neretva County’s beaches, the sea water corresponded to the requirements of the bathing water quality regulation (OG 73/08). However, during the third test, taken on June the 26th, 2019, pollution in the sea at Srebreno beach in Župa dubrovačka (Parish of Dubrovnik) was unfortunately found.

At Srebreno beach, located in Župa dubrovačka, additional samples of the sea water were taken on the 27th and the 28th of June, 2019. The test results have indicated the presence of short-term pollution. Similar sampling shall be repeated within seven days of contamination to check to see if the aforementioned short term pollution on that beach has halted.

Of the other 117 beaches in Dubrovnik-Neretva County, the sea at as many as 111 beaches has been rated as sea water of ​​outstanding quality. The sea water on the beaches of the Libertas Rixos Hotel in Dubrovnik, VK Cavtat in Konavle, Mlini in Župa dubrovačka and Uvala Luka in Trpanj was of good quality, while the sea water at the beaches of Šulić and Danče in the City of Dubrovnik was rated with a mere satisfactory rating.

Additional sea water sampling was carried out on the beaches of the island of Lokrum, White Rocks (Bijele Stijene), Danče, Lozica and at the beach belonging to Hotel Rixos Libertas in Dubrovnik. This process was carried out during the period from the 17th to the 22nd of June, 2019. All of the above mentioned beaches were of excellent quality.
