Weather Policy
bullet In the event that severe weather approaches the area, the Curran Aquatic Center staff will closely monitor local radar and weather reports. If necessary, the pools will be closed and guests will be asked to exit the water. The facility will remain open until conditions allow for reopening the pools.
When and if severe weather will affect pool operations is impossible to predict. Therefore, Curran Aquatic Center staff cannot predict whether the pools will be closed when severe weather is predicted, nor can they predict when the pools will reopen after a severe weather closure.
Decisions will be made on a case by case basis by facility staff. If the pools have closed, Curran Aquatic Center staff will reopen them as soon as weather conditions allow.
