The Maui Department of Parks and Recreation has closed the Old Wailuku Pool due to a bad leak reported on Thursday, July 23, 2015.

Park staff noticed the leak yesterday, and measured a seven inch water loss over a 12 hour period, according to county officials.

It is estimated if the pool continues to lose water at that rate it will be drained empty within seven days, an announcement said.
