Riordan Pool slide closed after inspection

Posted by wlpo on July 20, 2010

You can swim all you like at Riordan Pool in Ottawa but you won’t be able to use the slide.  The slide has been shut off for the remainder of the season because a pump for the slide doesn’t meet state standards.

Commissioner Wayne Eichelkraut says the problem was discovered during an inspection Friday.  Eichelkraut says other pool drains were updated before the start of the season but they weren’t aware of the slide changes.

He says correcting the pump is nothing major, but requires the pool be drained.  Rather than do that now, they’ll wait until the end of this summer.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
