Future of North High’s Pool in Question but Former ‘Otter’ is Trying to Save It
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Des Moines Public School administrators say they are spending far too much money on the pool at North High School; to the point they are considering shutting it down. DMPS says it costs $200,000 a year to maintain the pool and it isn't getting the use it needs to warrant them keeping it open. However, closing it would mean the historic Otters Swim Club would need to find a new pool.
