Georgetown residents won't be getting a chance to swim in the Suffoletta Family Aquatic Center this year.

Scott County Parks and Recreation officials say the leaks found in the pool before the planned--and subsequently postponed--opening on Memorial Day weekend will keep it closed until the 2013 season.

Contractors will be giving estimates on how much repairs for the park will cost Monday.

The pool will be losing around $100,000 in daily fees and has to refund about $11,000 to people who already purchased season passes.

Pool officials say they don't yet know the cause of the cracks...and won't until they pull out the concrete to look at the cracked pipes.
