Yes - much has changed at Lake Como.........

I've written on my pages about our sadness that our little water ski club is but a memory of the summer of 2004. We jumped from the roof here, went water skiing, and would swim to Villa d'Este - no more - not only is the club gone; but the pollution is prohibitive.
In 2007 it was reported that Lake Como is too polluted to swim in, with colony-forming units of bacteria at 68 times the safe limit for bathing, with a real risk for bathers of contracting skin infections, dermatitis and even salmonella.
