Kirksville Aquatic Center set to open this weekend

Good news for swimmers in Kirksville.

Assistant City Manager Melanie Smith confirmed with KTVO Thursday morning that they have found the location of the leak in the outdoor pool at the Aquatic Center.

The discovery will allow the outdoor pool to open as expected this Saturday, weather permitting. Smith says they need an air temperature of at least 70 degrees to open the pool.

The leak was discovered when the city began filling the pool with water for this yearâ??s season.

Once again, the outdoor pool in Kirksville will be open regular summer hours beginning this Saturday, weather permitting.
