Taking a dip in the Kerrville city pool is a thing of the past this summer due to the drought.

Sunday was the last operating day this year for Kerrville's Olympic-size pool.

The city says Stage 3 water restrictions prohibit the filling, refilling or adding water to swimming pools, wading pools and Jacuzzi type pools.

Stage 3 restrictions indicate "critical water conservation conditions."

General services director Kristine Ondrias says water to drink is more important than recreational water.

Kerrville's summer adult softball leagues also have been canceled for the rest of the summer, because of a lack of water to maintain the fields.

Kerville is a city of nearly 22,000, located 60 miles northwest of San Antonio.
