The main pool at Parkinson Recreation Centre remains closed today after being shutdown at noon Sunday for repair work.
A malfunctioning water filter has resulted in slightly murky water, which poses lifeguarding concerns. The cloudy water does not pose any health concerns for those who used the pool.
“Lifeguarding standards require a certain amount of water clarity which is not being met at this time,” said Tyler Stringer, aquatics coordinator at Parkinson Recreation Centre. “As a precaution, we’ve closed the main pool to the public until the problem is fixed.”
Maintenance repair of the problem started Sunday afternoon, but pool users are urged to call ahead to see if and when the pool will re-open today. The number to call is 250-469-8800.
The hot pool and children’s pool remain open.
