The adjective in your sentence is “cool” and it describes the noun “waters.”

An adjective is a word that describes, or qualifies, a noun.  It tells what kind, which one, or how many.  A noun is a person, place, thing, or idea. 

In this case, there are three nouns in your sentence: Taha, waters, and pool.  Only one of them is being described with an adjective, although pool is described with an article, the, which is considered a type of adjective.

The word cool describes the waters, or tells what kind of waters they are.  Adjectives are useful because they give us more detail about their nouns.
