Dirt­ier beaches.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Greece was among the Euro­pean coun­tries that saw a rise in the num­ber of beaches pol­luted with bac­te­ria from sewage, ac­cord­ing to sta­tis­tics pub­lished by the Euro­pean En­vi­ron­ment Agency. The EEA, which mon­i­tors 22,000 bathing sites, re­ported an over­all 3.5 per­cent drop in the num­ber of beaches meet­ing the ba­sic stan­dards for in­testi­nal bac­te­ria such as E. coli and fe­cal strep­to­cocci. In Greece, the drop was 5.6 per­cent, lower than in Por­tu­gal, Italy, Spain and France.
