WATERTOWN, S.D.–Watertown Parks and Recreation Director Terry Kelly says the Park and Rec Board will make a determination at their meeting next Tuesday (May 26th) on whether to open the outdoor Aquatic Center this summer.

The COVID-19 pandmic is making it look unlikely.

Kelly says chlorine in the water might kill the virus, but it’s all the other surfaces at a pool that people come into contact with that they worry about…

The indoor pool at the Prairie Lakes Wellness Center will see a phased-in reopening this summer.
