Update: Craig wave pool closed for the season

Staff Report

The Craig wave pool was closed Monday because of mechanical problems. City officials hope to have the pool opened later this week.

The wave pool at the Craig swimming pool will be closed for the rest of the season due to mechanical problems, Craig Parks & Recreation Director Dave Pike.

"Because the pool got overfilled (Sunday) night, the pump got wet as there was too much water in the pool," Pike explained.

The extra water damaged equipment that is necessary to operate the wave pool including the motor on the pool circulation pump and the wave generation motor and compressor, Pike said. The extent of the damage will be evaluated in the next week or two, he said.

"As a result the wave pool will be closed for the remainder of the season.  However the lap pool will stay open for lap swimming and open swim  until Aug. 22 and lap swimming only until Aug. 25. We are truly sorry for the inconvenience," Pike said.
