$25K donation keeps Mineral Wells pool open

Thanks to a large anonymous donation, the Mineral Wells City Pool will be open this summer after all.

With the ongoing drought and water restrictions, the City of Mineral Wells was poised not to open the pool. However, an anonymous donation of $25,000 is going to allow for the drilling of a well and associated costs including fencing and electrical work that officials say should provide enough water to operate both pools.

The Mineral Wells Index said the city has received approval from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality to use well water for the public pools as long as the water meets certain standards.
