If the pool is open and a storm approaches, the pool will close and the facility will be evacuated.  At the first observance of lightning or thunder the facility will be evacuated immediately. 

All patrons will be asked to leave the facility until the pool is re-opened.  Patrons will be allowed to use the phone, and will be allowed re-entry on the same day at no additional charge if the facility is re-opened.  No refunds will be issued.

Employees will monitor the weather.  The facility may reopen thirty (30) minutes following the last observance of lightning or thunder.  The pool will re-open when there has been no severe weather, or lightning observed or thunder heard, for a 30-minute period.  The assistant manager or manager will determine if and when the pool can be re-opened. 

In the event that the outside temperature falls below 70 degrees and remains that way for at least 30 minutes, the facility will close, and follow the Opening Policy
