FORT STOCKTON - It's not swimming weather outside, but Summer will be here before you know it, and residents in Fort Stockton will have one less place to cool off.

The County owned pool in Rooney Park has been shut down and will remain shutdown for the foreseeable future.

The pool is leaking thousands of gallons of water a day and crews have been unable to find the leak.

The pool also does not meet new federal safety standards.

Pecos County officials are currently reviewing plans to fix or replace the pool.
