Medlock Park pool opening delay

Posted at the request of DeKalb Co. Recreation, Parks and Cultural Affairs; information sent to MANA via email on May 27, 2022 at 9:17pm

During the inspection today with the Board of Health, the Pulsar motherboard which feeds information electronically to the chlorine pump at Medlock Pool short circuited. Standguard, the pool contractor, is working continuously to install a replacement board. In order for RPCA to open Medlock Pool, the Board of Health will need to return to Medlock Pool for a final inspection prior to opening. Once the BOH has been notified that the panel is replaced, they will be available for re-inspection. 

Until final inspection occurs at Medlock Park, nearby Kittredge Pool located at 1520 Kittredge Park Road, NE, will be open at noon tomorrow as scheduled.

We will continuously work with our contractor to see the repair completed as soon as possible.

I would appreciate if your office could help get the word out and hopefully this is a short term issue.

Please let us know if you have any questions, thank you!
