Today, crews remove a piece of Evansville history. Contractors arrived to take down the slide at Hartke Pool.

As we first reported last week, the slide's foundation is deteriorating, causing a liability issue. The company that made the water slide is no longer in business, so parts aren't available.

The Parks Board is looking into other alternatives to replace the slide.
