It’s hard to believe this week, but the biggest swimming pool in Australia is also one of the country’s most notorious.
In fact, the only thing that can be said about the Pool of Rotten Scum is that it’s a popular tourist attraction.
But the pool itself is also a major source of environmental destruction and pollution.
We spoke to a local expert who spoke of a water-filled pool in the middle of nowhere and how it would be a great place to hang out if you’re a tourist.
The Pool of Scum was built to resemble the famous Pool of Doom in the film, and has become a popular swimming spot in the area.
But that’s not the only reason it’s such a popular place.
According to local legend, there is an underwater cave in the centre of the pool that was used to store human waste.
The legend was actually told by a local resident in the early 1970s, who claimed to have seen it when he was a teenager.
But when it was discovered, it had been sealed off and never reopened.
The local council has since decided to close the pool to the public and has not been able to find any evidence of the cave.
The lack of evidence has led local historian Ian Roberts to believe the cave is a myth.
“It’s not a myth,” Roberts said.
It is believed the water is a mixture of mercury, chlorine and other chemicals, and it is believed that the pool has also been used as a dumping ground for garbage. “
In fact, I think they’ve done a really good job in protecting it from being opened to the general public.”

It’s thought the waste was collected in an underground chamber, and dumped into the pool’s depths.
“I have never been in the water,” Roberts told the ABC.
The story is even told in the local newspaper, and there’s even a mural on the wall of the local council building depicting the legend of the swimming pool. “
You can see the sewer pipes from there.”

Roberts believes the myth may have a good ring to it, because it has a very specific location.
“The legend is that in the 70s, the local authorities were planning a new swimming pool, and this is where it is located,” he said.
In the 1990s, another local man went into the water with his son to swim, and claimed he saw the legend.
Roberts is convinced the myth is a popular one.
“That’s what the legend says,” he told ABC Radio Perth.
“There is a cave in there somewhere.”
It’s believed the pool was originally used as an animal dumping site and there is also evidence to suggest the pool is a large and dangerous dumping site.
“We have seen people swimming there,” he explained.
“When they’re looking for an animal, they’re swimming there and they see that pool.”
The local government has decided to stop the pool opening for public use and the council has told Roberts it will be closed for the rest of the year.
“If we have to close it, we’ll close it for the next five years,” he noted.
“And if there’s an accident, we will not allow anyone in.”
The Queensland Environment Protection Authority has also issued a public warning against swimming in the pool.
“Due to the nature of the area, there are significant impacts to the environment including the potential for pollution, the release of pollutants into the environment, and the release to the surrounding environment of harmful chemicals and other materials that could affect wildlife,” the authority’s environmental impact statement said.
The authority’s chief executive, Michael Smith, said the decision was a tough one, but he said it was a step in the right direction.
“This is the first step in addressing the concerns that have been raised and we’re going to look at the evidence and make an assessment,” Smith said.
It remains to be seen if the local government will reopen the pool in a new location, but it may be possible to open it back up in a similar fashion.
