Swimming pools closed for repairs

Update: Swimming Pool repairs have been completed.

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Due to the discovery of a leak in the shallow pool this past weekend, the Gavilan College swimming pools are closed until further notice. Students in swimming classes have been contacted and notified by their instructors, and should check in for updates.

According to Jeff Gopp, Director of Facilities and Mainenance, "During a major drought we do not want to be allowing water to leak into into the ground. Therefore, the pools are closed until we complete the repairs."

It is not yet klnow how long this will take. Facilities staff is currently determining the cause of the leak, and will then perform necessary repairs before refilling and reopening the pools. 

The closure affects the 77 students enrolled in Kinesiology and Adapted Physical Education classes scheduled in the pool this summer. The pool is not open to the public.

 

Updates will be posted on this page when they become available.
