How did Blue Hole Form? Also can you drink out of it?
Blue Hole formed as a cenote (from the Mayan word for “well”) or natural sinkhole resulting from the collapse of limestone bedrock exposing groundwater below. In the case of this cenote the groundwater pressure causes a flowing artesian well which fills the hole to the surface and flows out into a stream. While the water has a high mineral content (“hard water”) the fast flowing underground spring is clean.
Where does the water supply come from?
It is believed that the water comes from the Ogallala Aquifer.
