City of Lake Worth Municipal Pool Closure Until Further Notice

Lake Worth, Florida — The Lake Worth Municipal Pool will be closed until further notice.
     The pool, built in 1971, has been suffering from rapidly deteriorating conditions including:
  • Pieces of the pump room ceiling falling on employees.
  • Pressurized water lines exploding.
  • Failure of the drives that control the motors thus leading to damaging vibrations.
“Due to these conditions, and others, the city has determined that the continued operation of the pool is putting City employees at risk and opening the City to liability, as such we have no choice but to close the pool until further notice. A consultant hired by the City will be providing a complete assessment of the pool, pump house and pool buildings on Tuesday, February 21st.
—City Manager Michael Bornstein
