Water is flowing again at the iconic Neptune Pool at Hearst Castle.

SAN SIMEON, Calif. -- Water is flowing again at the iconic Hearst Castle pool.

Crews drained the 80-year-old Neptune Pool in 2014, first because of the drought, then for repairs.

After four years of work, they're now testing the water.

This is part of a multi-million dollar project.

It will take a few days to fill the pool and it is expected to be back on the public tours again in two or three weeks.
