Deep Eddy Pool before closing for renovations last April.

Just months after reopening following major repairs to its deck, piping system and pool bottom that kept it closed for several months, Deep Eddy Pool is closing again. 

This afternoon, the Austin Parks and Recreation Department issued a statement that Deep Eddy has temporarily closed, due to a water line break. Teams are working to repair the break, and no word is available yet as to when the work will be complete and the pool will reopen.

The city is promoting Stacy Pool, at 601 East Live Oak St., as an alternative for area swimmers. 

Deep Eddy is the oldest swimming pool in the state.
