Spaulding Smails from the motion picture Caddyshack must have taken a dip in the Sioux Falls Mckennan Wading Pool recently, because the city was forced to shut it down on Wednesday (July 19) because of "doodie" found in the pool.

KSFY TV is reporting the McKennan Wading Pool located at 1400 South 3rd Avenue was closed Wednesday due to a "fecal incident."

Whenever an incident of this nature occurs, the city is forced to close the affected public pool according the Sioux Falls Parks and Recreation Water Quality policy.

City officials told KSFY TV that implementation of a disinfection process is required. The procedure maintains elevated chlorine levels for a period of 24 hours before the city is allowed to reopen the pool to the public.

The entire process according to the KSFY TV report, is based on guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The pool will reopen to kiddos all over the Sioux Empire again on Thursday (July 20) starting at 1:00 PM.

Until then, enjoy this classic scene from one of the funniest movies ever made.
