Coast fighting off sewage pollution

Koper/Piran, 21 August - Two of the four coastal municipalities have had problems with sewage pollution of the sea, an issue which has caught much media attention as a popular beach near Koper had to close for ten days in the midst of the tourist season. Public utilities say it is usually a result of buildings not being properly connected to the sewage system.

The beach in Žusterna in the Koper municipality was closed in late July and early August due to sewage pollution.
