Due to the Code Purple unsafe quality of air issued by the MWCOG, we have decided to close the pool today, 6/8/23. The health and safety of our members and lifeguards is our priority.
Stay safe and healthy. We will evaluate tomorrow morning about a Friday opening.
For regular pool closures due to lightning/thunder or unsanitary conditions, WRC has a Twitter feed that gives you up-to-the-minute updates. The feed is available on the footer of any page here on the website (just scroll to the bottom) or you can follow directly on Twitter: @WRCPool .
Montgomery County law requires the pool to be closed at any time, at the lifeguards’ discretion, for reasons such as difficult/unsafe weather, unsatisfactory water quality, equipment breakdowns, operation difficulties, and the like. For weather, the County requires that at the first visible evidence of lightning or audible thunder, the pool be closed and remain closed for at least 30 minutes after the last sighting of lightning or sound of thunder, and that all persons vacate the water and pool deck during the period of closure.
