The shores in the vicinity of Dar es Salaam have several usage; including fishing and marine resources utilisation, recreation and tourism. Environmental degradation in this area is therefore dangerous and unaesthetic. Along the Dar es Salaam coast, sewerage enters the marine environment through the harbour, ocean road (sea outfall), Msimbazi creek and Msasani bay. The main sea outfall discharges untreated waste water, mainly domestic characterised by high BOD, SS and Coliform content. In order to upgrade the existing pollution an alternative solution may be either to treat the waste water before disposing into the sea or to stop using the beach where pollution is high.
