The Pogradec shore waters exceed these bacteriological standards and provide risks to the public health. The levels of the chemical indexes clearly show the influence of organic pollution.

The concern of the Albanian state, the financing of World Bank to about $4 million, the care of EU and UNDP constitute a noble mission not only for protection from pollution but also to the protection of public health.
