Australia s Environmental Protection Authority issued a warning to steer clear of all 36 beaches in Melbourne, Australia s second biggest city, due to a poor water quality rating, which turns out, is code for poo.

This is not the first time this has happened.

Earlier this month, 21 beaches in Port Phillip Bay were deemed unsafe for swimming for the same reason.

Dr. Anthony Boxshall, the manager of applied sciences at the EPA, told ABC, We have indicators we look for which is an indicator of faecal contamination, which is a nice way of saying poo.

BeachReport forecast: all 36 beach sites rated POOR due to rainfall and likely stormwater pollution - avoid contact with water.
