The Municipality of Sidon and the Lebanese Union of Professional Divers launched a joint water safety initiative Thursday following the drowning of five people along the southern coastline this summer.The project will include signage warning against swimming anywhere except the public beaches, lifeguards stationed at the Sidon public beach, beach cleaning activities and monitoring of water pollution levels. Sidon's Mayor Mohammad Saudi was joined by the head of the professional divers' union, Mohammad Sargi, and local officials at Awali beach north of Sidon to announce the program, which was supported by several environmental organizations.
