Opening MCCS Pools After a Storm or Typhoon
9/27/2018

 

◾MCCS Aquatic Centers close at TCCOR-1 or when weather conditions deteriorate to unsafe levels.
◾Once we are in SW or All Clear, facility staff report to the pool to check for damage and to reset the facility for opening.
◾If there is a lot of debris, this can take a considerable amount of time.
◾We must also wait until the pumps are turned back on by base staff, then water chemical levels are checked and adjusted if necessary.
◾Once the pool is set and the water chemical levels are within our operational parameters, pools will open during their regular hours.
◾Before heading over for a swim, please contact your pool to make sure it is open!
