Visitors and locals have both been warned to avoid swimming at or near Mlini beach in the Župa Municipaity of Dubrovnik until further notice.
On Friday, Croatian news site Slobodna Dalmacija reported that the Dubrovnik Department for Environmental Protection issued a statement that the swimming area off Mlini beach had tested positive for high levels of E.coli, derivative of fecal matter. Testing of the water will continue until authorities are sure the results show safe levels of pathogens for humans.
