Hot Springs pool could be open as soon as Saturday


— Old Town Hot Springs officials say their lap pool and diving area should reopen by about 2 p.m. Saturday. The pool, closed Thursday because of a broken part in the filter pump, originally was scheduled to be closed until late next week.

But on Friday afternoon, Hot Springs officials said the new part arrived well ahead of schedule. They credited B & J Pump and Well Service for expediting the arrival of the custom impeller and installing it immediately.

Hot Springs marketing director Shannon Lukens said cleaning crews are finishing their work today on the drained pool, which will be filled with water beginning this afternoon.
