The pool closing date has been moved up to September 18. The last day of swimming will be Sunday September 17.
There are two reasons we decided to move closing up a week.
Firstly, we are vacuuming every day. That is too much for the pool board to maintain for two more weeks. Training volunteers to vacuum takes time that we don’t have as school and activities ramp up. Leaves and pollen are beginning to fall into the pool at a higher rate. That’s normal for this time of year, but those additional organics are more stuff we have to remove from the pool.

Now that school has started (The pool thinks school should start after Labor Day), our number of swimmers per day has gone down. A side effect is that the pool gets less circulation from legs kicking. When there is less circulation, algae and other problems can take hold. We are dealing with cloudiness this week because of this. The maintenance crew is all volunteer, so we can’t keep the pool open late if these problems become overwhelming.
It’s the time of year where the pool board reminds everyone of the rules, policies, and procedures of the pool.
We will be replacing the locking mechanism on the gate with an egress bar. We will keep you informed as we complete that process.
Bring your key every time you come to the pool. Don’t rely on someone else being there to let you in or out. Don’t swim alone.
