LISBON, N.D. (AP) - Residents of the North Dakota town of Lisbon have started a campaign to save the local pool.

WDAY television reports (https://bit.ly/1TYnv89 ) that parents Alison Kempel and Kari Webb made saving the aging pool a priority after noticing a portion of the pool was often closed last summer due to a low-functioning filtration system.

Kempel says that after 30 years, the pool needs about $600,000 in upgrades. They include a new filtration system, a remodeled and ADA-approved bath house, a new stair system into the pool, a climbing wall, a water slide and upgrades to the wading pool.

The Lisbon Pool Preservers have already raised $95,000, and more fundraisers are planned.
