PACC pool area to close for about one week
Waterslide intake cover code changes will require replacement with an updated cover after draining the pool at the Perham Area Community Center, in August.
This process is expected to take seven days to complete, including draining and refilling the pool.
Scheduled dates for closure are August 1-7.
Some have asked: "Why weren't these improvements done when the pool was drained in December?"
Answer: The covers were not available at that time. The covers designed for use in the PACC's pool needed to be custom designed to fit, according to Kevin Nelson, PACC director.
This required engineering, approval, and manufacture time. The cover was received at the PACC in early July. The window of time being used for this maintenance is during a week when there are no swim lessons or team practices, and otherwise lighter seasonal use.
