No swimming near Pasta island in Jelgava

In Jelgava, the Postal Island (Pasta sala) swimming location has developed increased microbiological contamination and is therefore banned from use, the Health Inspectorate said September 10.

On September 6 and 7, water quality tests were performed in 57 of Latvia's official sea and inland bathing locations. All other sites had water fit for swimming.

The Health Inspection takes samples of the 57 sites every month from May 15 to September 15.

The Inspection calls on residents to keep up with the current information on local government websites, as well as on the website of the Health Inspectorate, which regularly updates information on bathing water quality measurements and various restrictions in both 57 official bathing sites and unofficial bathing sites where water sampling has been organized by local authorities.
