ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

More than two weeks after kids in Albany got out of school and the city's one public pool still isn't open

We asked questions Monday night and found out the pool at the Carver Community Center is closed because of plumbing problems.

Recreation and Parks Department officials tell us city crews are working diligently to get it fixed.

Some kids in the neighborhood tell us they're disappointed by the delay and they're ready for the pool to open.

"Because I get in when it's hot. I get sweaty so i just jump and dive into the pool," said Niquel Williams, Resident.

" For all of us to have a fun activity together when it's hot. It's nice they got a place like this open for the community for us to play,” said Vonni Faison, Resident.

Officials hope to open the pool sometime next week.
