Municipalities are obliged to organize the work of lifeguard posts on the official beaches. Also, the authorities must take control of places of unauthorized swimming of citizens.

The coming week also promises to be hot, the Vladimirites will settle down on reservoirs and hardly anyone will be able to stop them. At the same time, the city still does not have complete information on the quality of water in the ponds.

According to ProVladimir in Vladimir’s Mayor’s Office, so far no official conclusions have been received by the Orange House. Specialists from the Center for Hygiene and Epidemiology took water and sand samples last week, but the results have not come yet. In addition, city officials are waiting for representatives of the center to come and examine the shoreline.

Recall that there are four official places for bathing people in the city: Semyazino, beach on the Klyazma, Sodyshka and Glubokoe reservoirs. Lifeguards are on duty everywhere.
