The Roswell Recreation and Aquatic Center’s indoor pool, which was closed Feb. 8 following the discovery and confirmation of a mold issue, will remain closed for an undetermined period of time as the necessary steps are taken to rectify the problem.
As part of the process to abate the problem, a piece of equipment must be replaced in the pool area’s air-circulation system and repairs will likely have to be made to the roof of the pool area. These projects will take considerable time, likely requiring the indoor pool to be closed for a significant, yet still unknown, amount of time. The other recreation areas of the facility remain open.
Facility staff personnel are directly contacting anyone with a pool membership and those registered for pool classes to inform them of the situation and suggest other aquatic and additional recreation options that are available in the community and at the center. The center’s outdoor pool, which usually opens each year in May, will instead open earlier this year on April 4. In addition, pool memberships will be extended to help compensate for the indoor-pool closure.
The City of Roswell and the Roswell Recreation and Aquatic Center apologize for this inconvenience and thank citizens for their patience.
