A couple of West Texas pools are getting upgrades but for one of those pools, the repairs can't come soon enough.

According to the Alpine Avalanche, the City Council recently approved repairs on the municipal pool.

The city accepted a bid from a contractor to get started on the upgrades sometime in June.

Residents will have to keep waiting to cool off as the pool has already been closed for over a year due to leaks.

The new repairs will cost around $330,000.

Over in Fort Stockton, the Comanche Springs Pool will open with some new additions.

We're told workers installed a new rubber floor around the deck area of the pool to keep swimmers from slipping on the wet ground.

The new floor should also prevent the ground from getting too hot and wood railings on the pool stairs have been replaced with metal railings.

The upgrades will cost about $70,000.

Comanche Springs Pool opens Saturday at 1 p.m.
