Hot weather and swimmers slathered in suntan lotion and sun block caused the chemical levels at the Wolfe Park pool to fall out of whack over a busy weekend, according to Parks & Recreation Dir. Frank Cooper. He closed the pool on Thursday for a "significant" shock treatment to add chlorination to the water.
Cooper said the pool should be open again on Friday.
"We had the same problem on Tuesday, but I thought it would clear itself up," he said. "Then the Fourth of July pushed it over the edge."
Friday's pool hours are from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m.
