Garfield Park pool to reopen

Garfield Park pool is expected to reopen Wednesday, according to Indy Parks. The pool had been closed since June 21 after dozens of people were taken to the hospital following a chemical incident. Indy Parks said two inspection reports suggest operator error triggered a chain of events that allowed sodium hypochlorite solution and hydrochloric acid to combine, resulting in an abundant production of chlorine gas. The gas led many to experience vomiting, coughing, sore throats and watery eyes.
