Barton Springs to shut down?

Just a heads up to anyone who may not have heard yet: Barton Springs Pool will likely close for 6-8 months in order to fix a bypass tunnel that has developed holes, threatening water levels, water safety and the endangered salamander. The bypass was build in the 70’s and it’s current condition demands repair in order to avoid complete collapse; there is no official date yet, as the city first has to find a way to pay for the project, but it is reported that repairs are not an option, they must be completed as soon as possible.

You can get the full details from this KXAN article and, in the meantime, go get your swimming in while you can!
