BALMORHEA - Balmorhea State Park's pool could be reopening soon if tests show the water is ok.

The State Park had to close the natural spring pool because people were complaining of odd rashes.

The water was tested in Odessa and San Marcos and shown to be clean and clear.

They're now just waiting for test results from Austin.

A volunteer has been swimming in the pool and hasn't seen a reaction.

Park officials still plan on having the pool flushed and cleaned.

The pool could open shortly after everything is squared away.
