Who poops in a pool? On purpose?
Bogert Pool was closed Thursday after fecal matter was found in the pool that morning.
“To us it appears someone was in the facility overnight,” said Elizabeth Hill, the city’s interim aquatics manager. “It was something that would have been done sometime between us closing last night and opening this morning.”
Staff members discovered “a decent amount” of fecal matter intentionally placed in the pool when they removed covers from the surface, Hill said.
The pool was closed while it was cleaned and more chlorine was added. It is expected to reopen this morning.
“We just follow the standard procedure of letting chlorine do its work in filtering through the system for 24 hours,” Hill said. “Our first priority and concern is just getting the matter out of the water and letting the chlorine start to work.”
