European bathing water quality updated
17 swedish bathing sites (beaches and lakes) got a red flag in the 2007 european survey. In my corner (southwest) we got away reasonably well: just two sites, well known locally for bad water quality. But Skåne as a whole can claim half of all failed swedish sites, with a third in city Trelleborg with surroundings alone. To some extent there may be a neighborly exchange: Denmark have more than 30 failed sites in the waters close to Skåne, while bathing sites in Finland are all good or very good.
