Due to on going water clarity issues at the Kinsman Sportsplex, the city has once again had to close the main pool while operation staff work to find the problem.
Jody Hauta, Director of Parks and Recreation, said the city along with the operation staff, pool manufacturers, consultants and Public Health, have been doing a number of things to address the issue.
He said they have put materials into the filters to try and filter out some of the issues, however were still unable to determine the cause of the murky water.
“The biggest problem we have had is that we haven’t been able to source what is causing the clarity issue.”
Hauta said after meeting with Public Health, on site Monday, they too could not determine the cause.
As of now, Hauta said there are a few things they are troubleshooting and working through with the mechanical systems, as well as furthering discussions with pool consultants.
Before, during and after this problem, Hauta said the City of Moose Jaw has always met or exceeded provincial requirements for pool water testing.
He said for those who visited the pool prior or between the water issues, all of the biological and chemistry tests sent away for testing came back clean, meaning the water has always been safe and up to code.
“One thing we want to assure the public of is that throughout the whole process, as per Public Health requirements, we are required to do multiple tests on a daily basis … and if something was requiring adjustment, we made the appropriate adjustment before the public was allowed in the pool."
