COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) - Adamson Lagoon and the Cindy Hallaran pool will be closed this weekend to address what city officials call water visibility issues.

According to updates on the city’s website, the Cindy Hallaran pool showed some unexplained cloudy-water conditions late Friday afternoon. It was closed for safety purposes and city staff is working to address the issue.

City employees will also work to address water visibility issues at Adamson Lagoon. The Parks and Recreation staff said isolated signs of cloudy water were first spotted earlier in the week. There was a concern it would compromise swimmer safety, so the pool at Bee Creek Park was closed.

“Since then, aquatics personnel have ensured the water’s chemical balance is at optimal levels and all mechanical systems are functioning properly -- but the visibility has worsened,” says the update on the city’s website.

“The city’s Water Services crews are currently draining the pool,” Parks & Recreation Director Steve Wright said in the update. “Our staff will inspect and perform any additional cleaning necessary, and then College Station Fire Department will pump nearly 434,000 gallons of fresh water back in.”

Updates on the status of each pool will be posted on the city’s website and the College Station Facebook and Twitter accounts.
