Opening of Airway Heights splash pad delayed because of water contamination

AIRWAY HEIGHTS, Wash. - Over the holiday weekend, the City of Airway Heights decided not to open the city's splash pad as usual, saying the water will not be turned on until it's clear of contaminates.

The Parks and Recreation department says they made the decision with safety in mind, and to err on the side of caution.

When children play in the splash pad, they often drink some of the water.

The Parks and Recreation department says they will turn the splash pad on as soon as they get "the green light" to do so.

Results from the next round of water testing should be available by the end of the week.
