Swimming ban on temporarily at state park

Published August 30, 2007
...swimming is prohibited at Florida Caverns State Park. The swimming spot is known as Blue Hole.

Algae is growing on the water and its color is brown. The water is moving so slowly it's not apparent it is. One can't imagine how anyone would want to swim the way it now looks.

"The health department has been testing regularly and up until last week it was okay. Last week the bacteria went up to the level the health department deemed unsafe."
