Providence Seeks Cause Of Cloudy Pools

Providence officials are still trying to figure out what caused city swimming pools to become so cloudy that they had to be closed for the year.  The pools were shut down because of fears that lifeguards would not be able to see someone at the bottom because of the cloudy water.  Officials tried chemical treatments and even drained the pools, but that did not fix the problem.  All of the pools were painted over this past spring, and tests are being conducted to determine if the paint is causing the cloudy water.
