In Defiance, flooding closed Kingsbury Park early last week, and along with it the pool. That’s the same pool that just opened for the season only a few weeks earlier. IT was last Wednesday when floodwaters spilled into the pool.
After the flood waters receded, city workers began the cleanup work, hosing down and removing the accumulated mud and pumping dirty water out of the pool. It’s the same pool that was discovered leaking just after it was filled for the summer. Now, before the pool is pumped full of clean water again, the city plans to take advantage of the opportunity to examine a 10-inch drain line beneath the pool with a camera to determine where it’s leaking. The leak is causing substantial water loss. Although the pool remains closed, Kingsbury Park is open.
