    Updated:

    SOUTH PARK, Pa. - UPDATE 6/9/19 2:09 pm: County officials said the Boyce Park Wave Pool will reopen Monday, June 10.

    The pool had to close for emergency repairs June 4 after equipment malfunctioned, and the pool started losing water.

    The pool will reopen at 11:30 a.m.


    The Boyce Park Wave Pool is closing for emergency repairs.

    According to the Allegheny County Parks Department, the pool will be closed for six to 10 days.

    The pool started losing water last Friday and a test revealed one of the pressure valves was busted.

    Before you head to the pool this summer, don't forget to check your WPXI Weather App.

    Officials think too much groundwater from all the recent heavy rain caused the valve to break and it can only be repaired by draining the entire pool.

    That process started Monday night and will take at least four days, then getting it back to normal will take a few more.
