Inclement Weather Policy

In the event of heavy rain, thunder, lightning, or a hazardous condition in the opinion of the pool manager / lifeguard, all swimmers will be cleared from the water, the bathhouses and deck area.  All swimmers and pool patrons are to remain out of the pool if the flash-to-bang count is under 30 seconds, and not to return until 30 minutes have elapsed since the last lightning is seen or thunder heard. 

Due to line-of-sight obstructions with trees, lifeguards use the WeatherBug application’s Spark Feature to determine the nearest lightning strike.
