Happy Council Cleans Barton Springs Pool Day

Thursday, October 11, 2018 by Elizabeth Pagano

Were you expecting a City Council meeting today? Well, you were right … in only the most technical sense. Today Council members (maybe a quorum!) will meet for “Council Cleans Barton Springs Pool Day,” which promises pool cleaning and updates to projects for Austin’s favorite swimming hole. According to a press release from the city, “Following remarks, Friends of Barton Springs Pool will conduct a tour of the Pool that includes the Historic Bathhouse, the Upstream Dam, a tour of invasive plants, new tree plantings, the reintroduction of aquatic plants, and the recently completed Eliza Daylighting project.” The fun starts at 9 a.m.
