Carmichaels Pool Opening Delayed Due to Significant Leak
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WAYNESBURG – Greene County Commissioners announce the delayed opening of the Carmichaels swimming pool. Over the past couple of days, the Department of Parks and Recreation personnel have been exploring a significant loss of water and the history of water loss at the pool. It has not been determined whether the leak is from the pool itself or from the plumbing or pump system. Industry experts were scheduled to investigate the issue this week. Until further notice and the issue resolved, Carmichaels swimming pool will remain closed.
“Obviously, we are disappointed not opening on time, but our first concern is the safety of our customers coupled with the fiscal responsibility of not continuing to pay for water consumption we know is well above average.”, stated Commissioner Mike Belding. “While we continue to investigate the concerns at Carmichaels, both the Greene County Water Park in Waynesburg and the Mon View Park swimming pool will open on June 5th. Both pools offer general swimming from noon until 6pm, swimming lessons from 6:00-7;00 and pool party reservations can be made for 7:00pm to 9:00pm through the Recreation Department.”, he concluded.
“An alternative to Carmichaels’ summer day camp swimming opportunity is being considered if the pool is not open by the start of camp,” stated Commissioner Betsy McClure.
