Warning signs tell people to stay out of the water at the beach near Nusseirat refugee camp in central Gaza Strip.Power shortages in the territory of 2 million people have severely disrupted operations at sewage treatment facilities, leading to the discharge of wastewater into the sea.U.N. figures showed 108 million liters of wastewater poured into the sea off Gaza every day in May.Some richer Gaza families have responded to the pollution by building swimming pools – and renting them out for 300 to 700 shekels ($85 to $200) per day.A Gaza water park, with several swimming pools and mechanical waves, offers another clean alternative to those who can afford the 10-shekel admission price.
