“Dry weather and the lack of water caused the water company to not be able to give the pool the water it needed,” explained pool manager Jan Woodall.
It is business is usual, however, as approximately 300,000 gallons of water is now sitting in the pool. There are a few changes, according to Woodall, that you may and may not notice at the pool this year.
“We have all new lifeguards this year,” said Woodall, “all of whom were certified, including me, at the Madisonville YMCA”.
Some behind the scenes differences are all new gauges in the re-done filtering system. The office will also soon have a new sink and hot water heater.
“These are just several new things that keep us up to code but people will more than likely never see,” insured Woodall.
The pool brings in anywhere between 50 to 75 people a day, including Creative Campus and Small World Daycare, who bring several kids everyday.
“It would be nice to have one hundred to one hundred and twenty five, but we will take what we can get,” laughed Woodall.
