Adamson Lagoon & Cindy Hallaran reopened
Posted on 06/18/2021
AS OF MONDAY, JUNE 21 AT 7:20 A.M.
Adamson Lagoon and Cindy Hallaran Pool are opening today for programs and general swim. Conditions could still change, so please check cstx.gov/pools and the city's Facebook or Twitter prior to heading out.

AS OF SUNDAY, JUNE 20 AT 3:30 P.M.
Water visibility has been restored at Adamson Lagoon and Cindy Hallaran Pool; however, conditions will be reexamined early Monday morning, June 21, to determine the status of program and general swim. Before heading out, please check cstx.gov/pools or the city's Facebook and Twitter accounts.

5:30 P.M. UPDATE
Late Friday afternoon, Cindy Hallaran Pool showed signs of the same unexplained cloudy-water conditions. The pool was closed for safety purposes, patrons were given rain checks, and city staff is working to remedy the issue.

As with Adamson Lagoon, Hallaran Pool will be closed through the weekend. An announcement related to Monday status of each pool will be posted at cstx.gov/pools and on the city's Facebook and Twitter accounts.


3:10 P.M. UPDATE

Adamson Lagoon at Bee Creek Park will remain closed at least through the weekend in order to remedy a water visibility issue that would compromise swimmer safety.

Initial, isolated signs of cloudy water were first detected earlier this week, according to College Station Parks & Recreation staff. 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.

"The city's Water Services crews are currently draining the pool," Parks & Recreation Director Steve Wright said. "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."

Wright said the timing of this issue is disappointing to his staff and to the community.

"This is our busiest time of the year, so this is beyond disheartening to me. The water is still chemically safe, but if lifeguards and parents can't see the bottom in some areas, we simply cannot allow that risk."

Wright hopes these measures will allow Adamson Lagoon to reopen in time for Monday morning swim lessons, but that announcement will be forthcoming. College Station's Cindy Hallaran Pool remains open.
