CLOSING POLICY

The pool manager shall, under the following conditions, be authorized to close the pool:

  • Low attendance for the day
  • When the air temperature falls below 70 degrees Fahrenheit for a continuous one-hour period.
  • If storm conditions create a clearing of the pool and there is no sign of weather changing.
  • Anytime lightning is spotted or thunder is heard, the pool will close for 15 minutes and will not reopen until thunder or lightning has not occurred for 15 minutes.
  • Situations occur that jeopardize public health or safety including fecal and vomitting accidents.  Illinois Health Code requires clearing the pool for a minimum of 15 minutes while chemical adjustments are made.

Refunds are not issued for any unscheduled closings.  

*The pool may reopen at employee shift change, which occurs on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays at 4:30pm.  Employee shift changes do not occur on Mondays, Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays so the pool will remain closed.
