America’s first Wavegarden installment is under fire. The Travis County is suing the NLand Surf Park just a few weeks prior to its opening in Austin, Texas.

The county commissioners announced that the man-made wave lagoon doesn’t meet the list of requirements for public swimming pools built in Texas.

“This action comes as a surprise to NLand. Since breaking ground in April 2015, we have worked closely with city, county and state officials, and have demonstrated a commitment to being responsible stewards in each aspect of the park’s operation,” notes the surf pool management team.
