algae blooms 01 - new Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool - 2012-09-13

Algae blooms in the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool on September 13, 2012.

 

The pool, which underwent a $34 million renovation in 2011 and 2012 to repair leaks and to install a freshwater system that would prevent algae from forming in the pool. It failed. The National Park Service now believes it will need to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars a year pumping ozone into the pool to prevent algae formation.
