We're nearly done with our spring cleaning projects in the Aquatics Center! However, you wouldn't want to go for a swim just yet. Our Main Pool holds 126,000 gallons of water and that much water takes a long time to heat up to the proper temperature. We expect the pool to be heated and ready to go on Saturday.
