Information from Seattle Parks

This is to let you know that Seattle Parks and Recreation has closed Southwest Pool, 2801 SW Thistle St., for the rest of the day because of contamination that could not be contained. In compliance with State of Washington health regulations, Parks is taking these routine steps to ensure the pool water is clean and safe for public use:

· Elevating chlorine levels

· Disinfecting all pool surfaces

· Using the pool’s ultraviolet disinfectant system as a supplemental effort

Parks and Recreation apologizes for the inconvenience to pool users and will reopen the pool at 7 a.m. tomorrow, Thursday, July 25.
