– Hawaii: a pool mysteriously turns… neon pink

Pink water. This is an abnormal phenomenon that occurs in October in Hawaii (United States). A pond at Kealia Ponds Preserve on Maui, in the middle of the archipelago, suddenly turned bright pink. A rare phenomenon that is not necessarily a sign of good news.

According to local authorities, this is due to the increased salt content in the pool. Increased salinity is caused by the presence of small microbes.

Water samples sent to the University of Hawaii showed halobacteria as the cause of the pond’s new magenta color, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Based on measurements taken in the last few days, the salinity level of the Kealia swamp is twice as high as the sea.

Therefore, these swamps can be twice as salty as sea water. Drought. According to Bret Wolfe, director of the refuge located in the nature reserve, interviewed by The Guardian, these pools are usually fed by the surrounding river, which allows the water level to rise. However, climatic conditions no longer allow the river to flow into the swamp.

“That’s probably why this phenomenon is disappearing,” he said, adding that even shelter volunteers who have been there for decades have never seen this phenomenon happen.
