Effect ash Eyjafjallajökull on swimmingpools

 

After the eruption in the Eyjafjallajökull glacier, many swimmingpools have had quite a lot of volcanic ash fall. But how is the situation now? We ask a few swimmingpools nearby the glacier.

The swimmingpool in Laugarskarð has not been closed at all due to ash fall from the volcano. Still, late summer there was a fine layer of ash in that area but not so much it had to be closed. This spring renovations were made in the pool since there were some cracks in it from the earthquake back in 2008. Celebrating it´s 72nd birthday, the swimmingpool is now quite impressive and many domestic and foreign tourists have visited the pool this summer. Now there are two swimming teams from Denmark and Aberdeen, Scotland, at practice in the pool.
