Plumbing, sewer work closes D.C. pool

By Washington Post editors

The District government has temporarily closed the East Potomac pool so that officials from the National Park Service can make repairs on the plumbing and sewage system serving the East Potomac area.

John Stokes, spokesman for the DC Department of Recreation, said that the pool, the adjacent golf building, and headquarters of the U.S. Park Police will be impacted by the work.

The pool, located at 900 Ohio Drive, SW, is one of the older city pools and is home to a number of swim teams.

Stokes said he did not know how long the pool would be closed.

That sucks. Why couldn't they do the repairs before Memorial Day or after Labor Day, then the pool is closed?
