Sun bathers and swimmers enjoy opening day at the Boyce Park wave pool in Plum in 2014.

The Boyce Park Wave Pool is set to reopen to the public starting Monday after receiving emergency repairs for a week.

The Allegheny County Facilities Management and Parks Department closed the wave pool last Tuesday when they discovered the pool was losing water on May 31 due to a malfunctioning valve.

The pool was closed to let crews replace the pool’s six valves, which are designed to maintain pressure between water in the pool and water in the ground. Excessive rainfall is believed to have caused the valves to malfunction.

The county owns and operates two other wave pools in Settlers Cabin Park and South Park. North Park also has a swimming pool.

Pools are open daily from 11:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. through Sept. 2, depending on weather conditions.

For more information, visit the county’s website.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
