Mt. Lebanon pool opening may be delayed

Wednesday, June 11, 2014, 10:33 a.m.
 

Mt. Lebanon officials may not know until Friday whether they can open the community's renovated swimming pool as planned on Sunday, given a tight schedule, a pending inspection and the threat of inclement weather.

Work totaling $4.2 million at the pool and bathhouse was coming down to the wire, Recreation Director David Donnellan told Mt. Lebanon commissioners on Tuesday.

The remodeled pool was being filled early this week, the chemical system was to be installed Wednesday morning and the last concrete work on the deck was planned as the National Weather Service predicted a 60 percent chance of rain on Wednesday afternoon.

The Allegheny County Health Department is to inspect the pool on Friday, but that leaves no time to fix any problems the inspectors find and get a reinspection before the promised Sunday opening, Donnellan said.

If the staff or commissioners decide to postpone the opening, officials will post a notice online, send out automated “Lebo Alert” email and text messages and notify pool pass holders, he said.
