Xlendi Bay has been declared unfit for swimming after it was contaminated by farm material dumped into the drainage system, which caused an overflow, the Department of Information said.

The material led to the blocking of the drainage system which resulted in an overflow into the valley and sea.

Water Services Corporation employees went on site and are carrying out the necessary repairs and cleaning up the area.


The Energy and Water Management Ministry condemned the irresponsible behaviour.
