Judge permanently closes Blue Cove swimming hole
ATHENS, Tennessee (WDEF) – The Blue Cove in McMinn County is closed permanently following a Circuit Court ruling.
McMinn County Sheriff Joe Guy confirmed the closure to News 12.
A child was seriously hurt at the blue cove in July, and two people have died there over the past few years.
Sheriff guy says there have been reports of an arson, drug trafficking, and underage drinking.
Now that the property is permanently closed, anyone caught there could face criminal charges.
