Barton Springs University postponed due to flooding

Tuesday, September 25, 2018 by Katy McElroy

Austin’s yearly day of educational activities related to Barton Springs, Central Texas waterways, and conservation in general has been postponed until further notice. The pool flooded on Saturday after the rain and had to be closed. Barton Springs University organizers held out hope that the event, which was scheduled for Tuesday, could still take place, but on Sunday night they received word that the pool will not be ready to reopen to the public until later in the week. There is no official reschedule date yet, but organizers are looking at the last two weeks of October, after the Austin City Limits Festival.
