A popular Ankeny pool will be closed until this weekend due to a possible cryptosporidium contamination.

The intestinal parasite has been spreading through public pools across the state this summer.

Ankeny closed down Cascade Falls Aquatic Center, Thursday so the pools could be treated to kill off the parasite.

The pool is scheduled to re-open on Saturday.
