The city of Chicago is moving forward with a project to upgrade the city's swimming pools.

The improvements will make the pools energy efficient and cut down on carbon emissions.

The project will be paid for entirely from the energy savings after the pools are upgraded.

Companies can begin submitting proposals for the project starting this week.

The city has not said when or how long the upgrades will happen.
