YELLOW SPRINGS, Ohio (WDTN) - A potentially poisonous situation at a Greene County pool.
Yellow Springs had to shut down Gaunt Park Pool after village workers accidentally sprayed a full concentrate weed killer on the grass instead of diluting it to take care of a bee problem.
The pool is temporarily closed after a herbicide known as Escalade 2 was sprayed in the grassy areas surrounding the pool last Wednesday.
Several people who were at the pool since then have complained of headaches and rashes.
As a result, village officials closed the pool last Friday and had experts take soil and water samples.
A special meeting was held Thursday evening to discuss the results.
The water sample didn't have any traceable amounts of the herbicide, but the soil sample had to be sent to the Ohio Department of Agriculture for analysis.
In the meantime, village officials decided to fence off the grassy areas inside the pool and re-open Friday morning for the swim team to practice.
They say it is still unclear whether the pool will be open to the public following that practice.
It depends on when they get the analysis on the soil samples.
Village officials say they will review policies to make sure this never happens again.
