Monday, October 30, the Ministry of health has reported contamination of the sea near bat Yam and recommended tourists to refrain from swimming on this stretch of coast.
The reason for the closure of the beaches was hit sewage into the sea due to a malfunction at the pumping station.
Note that the bathing season in Israel ended on 19 October. This means that on most of the beaches on the Israeli Mediterranean coast are no lifeguards. The only beach in bat Yam, which will work to rescue the 30 November, is a beach «Sal».
