AC Problems Force Some DC Pools to Close
Air conditioning unit problems have prompted officials to shut down several D.C.-area pools and recreation centers. News4's David Culver has the latest details.
The heat wave will continue Saturday, but beating the heat may not be easy for some living in the district.
Four D.C. indoor swimming pools will be closed Saturday because of air conditioning problems.
DC Parks & Recreation says the Kennedy Rec Center (7th & P Streets in Northwest), as well as the Deanwood, Takoma, and Wilson Aquatic Facilities are closed as crews repair the air conditioning.
