Greenville Pool Remains Closed

Some in Greenville are having a hard time cooling down in this hot weather because of a delay in opening the Greenville Community Pool.

Originally slated to open last weekend, the pool is forced to remain closed while maintenance to the filtration system is completed.

All swimming pools are required under federal legislation to install new safety systems on the pool suction and water intake systems to prevent children from being stuck underwater.

Unfortunately, the new safety features interfered with the chlorination and filtering equipment at the pool.

Greenville aquatics supervisor Mike Godwin says, "Without the pump running, we cannot keep chlorine and things flowing through the system and keep the water filtered, so we definitely want it to be sanitary and safe at the same time."

Godwin says parts are on the way that should fix the problem, and he hopes to open the pool by next week.
