Inclement Weather Pool Policy

In the event of inclement weather involving lighting and thunder the following procedures* will be observed in the outdoor and indoor pools.


Thunder: 

Pools will close for 30 minutes, meaning no one is allowed in either body of water.

Lightning: 

Pools will be closed. Pools will reopen 30 minutes post storm or when deemed appropriate by the Aquatics Department.


*The National Weather Service policy states:
"…Avoid water-related activities such as swimming (including indoor pools), boating and fishing…Do not consider unprotected open structures such as picnic pavilions, rain shelters and bus stops. Avoid contact with metal fences, metal bleachers, or other long metal structures. And the cardinal rule remains: Do not take shelter under trees to keep dry during thunderstorms."
