NEW YORK(CBSNewYork) — The New York City Parks Department has confirmed that the McCarren Pool was closed on Saturday because of a “loose stool.”

Parks officials said that the chlorine level would have to be raised and that it would be twenty-four hours before the pool would re-open.

The pool has been shut down a number of times this summer beginning with a fight on June 29, only a day after it was re-opened following a $50-million renovation.
