The water in the Olympic diving pool is blue again

Diving Canada explains Rio's green pools

Order has been restored to the Rio Olympics.

The water in the diving pool is blue again.

After nearly a week of mysteriously green water, brought to a head when officials had to close the pool because the water smelled "like a fart," the water in the Maria Lenk Aquatic Center is back to normal.

See more of the pool, including the draining process:

On Saturday, officials said they would drain the pool after they were unable to restore its blue coloration. It seems to have done the job.

British diver Tonia Couch posted a photo on Twitter noting the change in color.

Several other reports noted the change, too.

Here was the water on Wednesday, when the water polo pool also began to turn green.

According to a report from the New York Times, a maintenance worker had mistakenly poured hydrogen peroxide into the pools, thus neutralizing the chlorine and allowing algae to grow.

While Rio officials were unable to fix the situation, they maintained that the water was not dangerous to swimmers, and thus far, aside from a few complaints of itchy eyes, there haven't been any serious issues.
