CAMBRIDGE — Problems with water clarity prompted the City of Cambridge to close the John Dolson Pool on Tuesday afternoon.

In a release, city officials said they’re working with the region’s public health department to correct the problem that was noted in a late-afternoon inspection.

Tuesday evening programs at the South Street pool including swim lessons, water fitness and leisure aquatics were cancelled.

Area recreation manager Conny Smith said a lack of clarity is a safety issue that can make monitoring swimmers more difficult. The Dolson pool uses salt water systems.

A further inspection is planned for Wednesday morning, and the city said it will advise when the pool reopens. Residents can call 519-740-4681, ext. 4527, for more information.
