The outlook for the northwestern Black Sea Coast will remain favourable until July 15, with potential pollutants remaining along the coast of Ukraine, the Ministry of Environment and Water said in a statement on Saturday. The Ministry is regularly monitoring the sea water situation after the collapse of the wall of the Nova Kakhovka dam.

The latest data from the Integrated Coastal Zone Management and Monitoring Centre at the Naval Academy in Varna, as well as satellite monitoring, do not show pollution of the Bulgarian water area with potential pollutants as a result of the incident.

Satellite images from the same date show that no pollution is observed in the coastal and exclusive economic zone of Bulgaria.

The Black Sea Basin Directorate and the Varna Regional Laboratory of the Executive Agency for the Environment are monitoring the quality of coastal water off Durankulak, Shabla and Kaliakra on a weekly basis, the Ministry said.

The Ministry is in constant exchange of information with the Ukrainian, Moldovan and Romanian authorities on potential water pollution in the Black Sea. Up-to-date information on the results of the measurements made is provided in a timely manner to the competent institutions and the public.

The monitoring of the state of the sea waters is coordinated with the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Tourism.
