It's been almost two months since the money to open the pool at Sheppard Airforce Base was donated and families are enjoying it.
In this drought and scorching hot weather, drinking water is the number one priority, but it's also in high demand for other reasons such as cooling off. This year, public pools that are open are seeing that demand peaking every day as crowds come to seek relief from the heat.
Sheppard Air Force Base officials say they wanted to make sure they kept base pools open this summer as they're a big morale booster.
