The indoor pool at the Paula Martin Jones Recreation Center will close at 12 PM Noon on October 22 for repairs to the filter. The pool will reopen for regular operating hours on October 26 at 6 AM.
While performing routine maintenance on the pool, Parks and Recreation staff noticed sand in the pool. After a brief investigation, staff identified a broken lateral in the filter allowing the filter media (sand) to pass back into the pool. To make the repairs, the filter sand must be removed and laterals replaced. The Longview Public Works Department has been enlisted to help with the project. When the repairs are complete the expected life of the filter will be extended another 10 – 12 years.
