The city of Charleston has annouced that the swimming season is over for the year.

City officials say the lack of qualified lifeguards is the reason for ending the season early. Most of the lifeguards were part-time employees who have had to return to school or related activities.

Labor Day weekend was scheduled to be the last weekend of swimming for city pools.
