This short-term closure is necessary for department staff and engineering consultants to conduct necessary extended period monitoring and tests at the facility that require the pumps to be placed offline.  These tests and observations are intended to confirm that upcoming improvements proposed for the facility will successfully address the recurring power and water loss problems that have resulted in the numerous unscheduled closures experienced there since the pool was opened in May 1997.  Aquatics staff will also implement its regular monthly maintenance operations during this closure.

The staff of the Department of Parks and Recreation thanks all patrons for their understanding and patience during this required closure.
