On October 4, the Travis County Commissioners Court approved a temporary injunction that will allow NLand Surf Park to operate as long as it maintains a specified water quality determined as safe by County staff. NLand Surf Park could open as early as this week.

Travis County filed suit against NLand Surf Park in July 2016 to prevent the Park from opening its pool without meeting the minimum requirements of a public pool under state law. The temporary injunction, approved by the Commissioners Court, is scheduled for presentation to a district court judge today. After the district court judge enters the injunction, NLand could begin operations before the end of the week.

State public pool laws exist to protect public health. The County enforces these minimum standards on behalf of the State. Travis County takes public health standards for man-made water parks very seriously and is working with NLand Surf Park and all parties involved to uphold public pool safety standards.
