With temperatures soaring near record highs, plans to open the American Legion Swimming pool in Cadiz have hit another snag- this time in the form of the Kentucky Department of Health for apparent violations carried over from the previous year.

According to Trigg County Judge/Executive Stan Humphries the Department had issued several grievances concerning the health of those who may frequent the pool. “Since we last talked, it has been brought to our attention on June 3 that a list was given to former pool manager Jan Woodall about some inadequacies in the pool by state officials,” Humphries said. He added that he believed Woodall received the list of grievances last fall, and learned about it’s existence along with current manager Rhonda P’Pool only last week.

“We’re in the process of going over the list (to see) if we have ample time, funds and workdays to complete the repairs and get a clean slate to sign off on and open the pool,” he said. In the alternative, he said that the County has inquired about requesting a variance from the Trigg County health department, though it had not been approved or granted as of Monday morning.

If a variance is granted, Humphries said that the pool could open later this week. He said that he did not know the specifics of the grievances listed by the health department. He referred inquiries to P’Pool, who could not comment at the time due to a death in the family.

Humphries said that he had spoken to representatives of Natural Pool and Spa. “They said that the complete list would run into some money and time for repairs.”

He noted the county has spent at least $2,000 to remove crumbling plaster and patch the floor of the pool. Humphries said that plans to apply $3,000 of a sealant onto the concrete floor and walls had been suspended pending the granting of a variance or addressing the concerns of the State. He said that the county would return the sealant for a refund if the pool could not be opened.
