City pool reopens

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla._ The public swimming pool in Lawton is finally open, after having to shut down for six weeks to take care of some unexpected piping problems below the pool.

Kids were out taking full advantage of the water under Friday’s hot sun.

City staff noticed the pool's water was discolored back in mid-May right before opening day. They later found four breaks in circulation lines connected to the pool's filter. Crews were forced to rip up concrete to fix the problem, which city officials say cost around $5,000.
