Barton Springs pool closes after storms

Posted: Updated:

After 15 weeks of repairs, Barton Springs pool is closed again.

The pool just re-opened last weekend. But Tuesday night's heavy rainfall caused flooding near the Austin landmark, filling the 68-degree waters with debris.

So for the next few days crews will be cleaning the pool to make sure it's safe for swimmers.

In the meantime, the Austin Parks and Recreation Department will modify the schedule at Deep Eddy pool to make sure swimmers have a place to go.
