OHRID LAKE WATER IS CLEAN
The water of the Ohrid Lake is mostly of first category quality, including the coastline belt along the beaches on the Macedonia side.
The results of the measurements carried out at as many as 28 different locations by the Ohrid's branch office of the Healthcare Protection Office (HPO) showed this, Makfax's correspondent reported.
According to the results of the physical and chemical analysis, 61.2 percent of the water samples have been classified as Category 1, while 38.8 percent were of Category 2.
HPO informed that the four rivers flowing into the lake - Velgoshka, Koselska, Sateska and Cherava are the biggest polluters of the lake.
The analyses showed that 50 percent of the water of these lakes is of third class and 50 percent of fourth class. Pursuant to the Ordinance on Water Classification, these waters should be of second class.
MD: Good to know, when planning to head over to Ohrid and jump in the lake at these extremely high temperatures :)
