Cold Weather Guidelines for Winter Months
NE Pool: NE Pool: The pool blankets will be placed over the entire pool at closing time each day when the ambient air temperature is forecast to drop below 50°F for at least two consecutive nights. The blankets will be removed the next day at the pool's scheduled opening time, unless the air temperature is still below 50°F.
The pool blankets will not be removed from the pool when the ambient air temperature is at or below 50°F. If forecasts call for freezing conditions, the swimming pool will not open to the general public or aquatic user groups.
If the wind is over 15 mph, aquatic staff will not put the blankets on or remove them until such time as the wind velocity drops below 15 mph. This applies to steady wind velocity as well as wind gusts.
Aquatic staff will make every attempt possible to accommodate our patrons, but safety and protection of equipment must be of primary concern.
The Aquatic Supervisor or his/her designee will make the final decision regarding covering and uncovering the pool.
