WADING POOL IN SEAFORTH FACING CHALLENGES DUE TO NEW LEGISLATION 7/10/2018 9:10:52 AM
After 56 years in operation, the Seaforth Lion's Park wading pool is temporarily not allowed to be used.
On Friday, July 6th, a Huron County Public Health Inspector informed the park and pool supervisors that new regulations were now in force and that the Seaforth wadding pool did not meet those regulations.
Chair of the Seaforth Lions Park and pool, Bob Beuttenmiller tells myFM to have the wading pool open full time would cost roughly $7500 for the club if the pool was staffed eight hours a day.
He says they are looking at options as currently, no lifeguards are available.
The new regulations which came into effect July 1st state the wading pool must be supervised by qualified staff from the time the pool begins to be filled until it is drained.
Beuttenmiller says its frustrating because the wadding pool has never had to have a staff member.
