Abstract: "The Blue Lagoon Lake is the result of anthropic activity in Aghires area, boeing Ander the action of natural factors, since the beginning. The area is rich in caolino quartz sands which were intensively exploited for a while. The lake inpoundment is formed in an excavation followed by the collapse of the galleries. This study includes an assessment of physical and chemical lake water quality in the summer of 2009 and a comparison of measurements made during 2008-2009. The water physical and chemical properties varied within narrow limits in both their spatial and temporal variation, with significantly lower values in year 2009. The comparisons were made vertically, horizontally and in time. In time it can be observed a reduction of the dissolved oxygen which cause a decrease of the lake water quality including in terms of aquatic life."
