Be extra careful when choosing your swimming spot this coming weekend…

The Environmental Health Directorate within the Superintendence of Public Health has just announced that bathing is not recommended at Fond Ghadir, Sliema (site code B12) until further notice.

This is due to the presence of sewage overflow affecting bathing water quality and thus, presenting a risk to bathers’ health.

Officials from the Environmental Health Directorate are investigating the issue.

Just last week, a similar incident saw sewage overflow tarnish the quality of bathing water at Qui Si Sana – another Sliema swimming spot. The beach was still plagued by the issue up until earlier this week, at the very least.

Fond Ghadir Bay, Sliema

For more information about these issues, you can contact the Health Inspectorate Services between 7:30am and 3:30pm on 21337333, send an email on [email protected][email protected], and [email protected], or call personally at its offices at Continental Business Centre, Old Railway Track, Santa Venera.

Share this with someone from Sliema.
