The company that runs the saltworks has now posted private security guards to prohibit any bathing in the lake. Fines of €60 to €600 can be imposed if you ignore the notices which are on display in 4 languages.

Only the Police and the courts can legally fine you, not private security guards surely

Yes freddo the Policia Local are cooperating with the saltworks and will issue the fines. Although one wonders about the likelihood of that happening because of the numbers on duty at any one time. The sheer volume of numbers of people using the lake daily could make it very difficult. Isn't there a Park Rangers section of the Guardia Civil as well?
