In the event of inclement weather (severe storm, pouring rain, and/or lightning) in the area, the Recreation Center Pool will close in order to ensure the safety of all patrons and staff. The pool will re-open for activity once the inclement weather has passed.
In Case of Lightning
The Recreation Center has a lightning detection system that will sound an alert when lightning is in the area. Pool will be cleared when lightning is detected within a 10-mile radius of the facility. When lightning is detected, one long whistle blast will sound indicating that all patrons and staff should exit the water and seek shelter. Facility will reopen 30 minutes after the last bolt of lightning is detected.
In Case of a Severe Storm or Pouring Rain
Severe storms and pouring rain decrease the visibility of the bottom of the pool. For the safety of all patrons, the Recreation Center Pool will close when the lifeguards can no longer see the bottom of the pool. The pool will re-open for activity when the storm has passed and the bottom of the pool is visible.
In Case of Cold Weather
The Recreation Center Pool will close if the air temperature is below 50 degrees or lower. The Recreation Center Pool will also close when water temperature is 60 degrees or lower.
