UPDATE: Marion Pool closed for vandalism

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: One day after the pool is closed for poop in the pool, the Marion Pool is closed for vandalism.
Those with the pool say it will be closed until further notice after glass was found in the pool deck and in the water. 
The CDC requires the pool be drained and cleaned to make sure no glass is left in the water.
It will take a few days to clean the pool, so swimming lessons will be rescheduled. 
The Parks and Recreation Department is trying to figure out who caused the issue.
PREVIOUS: The City of Marion says their pool is closed today after a "fecal incident."
It's being disinfected and should re-open tomorrow in time for swim lessons, lap swim and open swim. 
To prevent future incidents the city is reminding people to put children who are not potty trained in a swim diaper, change diapers every 30-60 minutes and use pool breaks as bathroom breaks. 
They are also asking people who have been sick stay out of the pool as well as those who have diarrhea. 
The city also asks that people shower before getting into the pool.
