This spring is currently closed. The flow has decreased greatly and now drains directly to the river via a pipe and never enters the pool.

Actually I just called them on July 1st and they are still open.

The pool is drained weekly. To do so, the spring is diverted directly to the run at the eastern end of the pool. This is very much a reqired part of maintanance because no chemicals are used. While the water continuously flows, not all waters are exchanged. If you view the pool in the winter months when the full exchange is not being done, there is an algae buildup on not only the bottom of the pool but in the top of the spring itself.
