Ah, childhood memories

Here’s a story about the cleanup — by the Guam Environmental Protection Agency(!) — of a ‘contaminated’ high-school pool (emphasis mine):

7:47 a.m. Guam – The Guam Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is tasked with issuing the permit to drain the Southern High School swimming pool.

Spokesperson Tammy Andersen says no permit has been issued yet, but it is needed to ensure the contaminated water is properly disposed.

But another bizarre issue has surfaced. A witness says he has seen a mutated fish surface in the pool. Is it possible a “frankenfish” lives in the pond that is the Southern High School pool? Andersen says they are aware that fish live in the pool but hadn’t heard of such a creature taking up residence in the pool. The Department of Agriculture may be called to do the fishing but Brent Tabbitts says he’s not aware of exactly what kind of fish reside there.

Heh. Our family lived in Subic Bay (Philippines) for two years while my dad was stationed there. We used to swim at the Officers’ Club pool in our housing area. Large water bugs (think: aquatic cockroaches) swam in the pool as well. But I don’t think we had any fish, particularly not mutated ones. Hat tip to The Anomalist. ..bruce w..
