Body fluid contaminations… are an unfortunate fact of life in public pools
Depending on the extent of the contamination, it may be necessary to close a pool for an extended period of time. If this occurs less than halfway through a public swim event, all swimmers will be issued a free pass for a future swim. If the incident occurs later than halfway through the event, there will be no refunds. Though it can be very frustrating when it happens, we request your understanding and cooperation.
About our air, water, and sanitation
Our first responsibility is to maintain a clean and safe environment. The pool deck and locker rooms are sanitized daily.
