The City’s Splash Station aquatics center will be closed through June 17 due to a mechanical issue.
The park has been closed as of June 9 after mechanical failures halted operations. Staff spent the first part of the week diagnosing the issue. After a 48-hour drying period, two of the park’s four pumps came were running. All four need to be in commission for Splash Station to operate. The City will have four new pump motors by the end of this week. The acquisition of required parts has taken time has staff has had to search out-of-state to find necessary equipment. Staff is also working with a local company to repair the two damaged motors, which will serve as back-up equipment in case of any future issues.
The other piece of equipment that needs replacement is a specialized valve, which the City was tracked down in California. After its arrival a specialized technician will install the valve and the earliest the City could schedule a technician on Monday, June 17.
Once repairs and testing are on-going staff will have a better timeline for an opening date.
The City thanks the community for its patience, staff working hard to be able to get families back to swimming, splashing, and having fun.
