Water in the pool is clear but fairly dark. Thereis a strong boil in the NW corner of the pool. The pool and run are filledwith exotic vegetation as well as duckweed. Algae is present in the pooland run. The run is about 40 feet wide and 1-3 feet deep and has a strongcurrent. There are low banks and some trees along the run and around thespring pool.
