Blue Lagoon Dyed Black to Deter Swimmers

“A Blue Lagoon at a disused quarry in the Peak District has been dyed black in an attempt to try and deter swimmers,” reports the Telegraph

“The local council took the step after finding people were unable to resist the pool’s turquoise waters – despite the fact that it was almost equivalent to swimming in bleach.”

The PH levels at a swimming pool are maintained between 7.0 and 7.8, the levels at the Blue Lagoon were as high as 11.3 with bleach having a level of 12.3.

The quarry pool at Harpur Hill, near Buxton, Derbeyshire – known locally as the Blue Lagoon has now been dyed black to deter swimmers.
