City: Treated Pool Water Safe For Environment

As reported earlier in the Janesville Gazette, the wading pool in Janesville's Palmer Park was closed after a leak was discovered. The cause of the leak was due to a damaged or missing 2-foot long strip of caulking.
JG Excerpt:
City staff initially questioned whether the 50,000 gallons of water that leaked into the ground below the pool would cause any negative environmental effects, given the chemicals placed in the pool to keep it clean. However, city water treatment officials said those chemicals would be inert, meaning they do not react with any other elements or compounds. Malone said there would be no environmental impact.
