COUNTY NEWS RELEASE
On the morning of Tuesday, Sept. 28, the electric contactor that provides power to one of the Aquatic Center main pool motors failed. That failure in turn does not allow the large (50hp) motor to run. The Aquatic Center requires two motors, per standard, to operate the main pool and the other motor and pump do not have the capability to provide the code mandated flow to the pool for users. As a result, Aquatic Center main pool will be closed until a new contactor arrives and is installed. Once installed, the remainder of the system will be tested to see if other parts downstream of the contactor failed.
However, the Therapy Pool and Front Desk of the Aquatic Center will remain open. The Front Desk is open from 6:00am- 6:00pm, Monday through Friday. The Therapy Pool is open Monday through Friday with the following sessions:
Monday – Friday
7:00 – 8:00am Adult 15 & up Only
8:30 – 10:30am Family Swim Children 14 & under must be accompanied by an Adult
12:00 – 1:00pm Family Swim Children 14 & under must be accompanied by an Adult
1:30 – 2:15pm Adult 15 & up Only & Private Swim Lessons
2:45 – 4:00pm Fun Time Children 6 & under must be accompanied by an Adult
4:30 – 5:45pm Fun Time Children 6 & under must be accompanied by an Adult
We apologize for the inconvenience; we are working to obtain the necessary parts to get the main pool system back up and running.
