Heavy rain can make it difficult to see the bottom of a pool or beneath the surface. If heavy rain causes bottom obstruction, pools will be cleared and halted until the rain lets up. Wind can also cause safety hazards. If wind is observably strong or gusty and causes bottom obstruction due to rippling, swimmers will be cleared from pools until the bottom is visible.
Water must be cleared of all swimmers at the first clap of thunder or lightning, or any other dangerous weather condition. The pool must remain cleared for 30 minutes after the last clap of thunder or lightening. Patrons must remain at least 20 ft. away from the deck, if the weather worsens, the pool area must be vacated.
While closing a pool for any reason is an inconvenience, keeping you safe should never come secondary and is always our priority.
