Olney Swim Center closed Wednesday due to water main break
Olney Manor Park also closed for remainder of day
The Olney Swim Center is closed for the remainder of today due to a broken water pipe, but is expected to re-open Thursday.
Montgomery County Department of Parks crews were working on some repairs at the swim center early in the day, which led to a break in a pipe, said county spokeswoman Sue Tucker
Tucker said she does not know exactly how and at what time the water pipe broke.
"We're pretty optimistic that the repairs will be done and the facility will open as scheduled tomorrow," Tucker said.
Parks department officials could not be reached for comment.
At 2:14 p.m., Alert Montgomery issued a message that Olney Manor Park, where the swim center is located, is also closed for the day. All games scheduled for tonight have been cancelled.
The swim center is at 16605 Georgia Ave.
