Due to the discovery of a bacteria during routine KFL&A Public Health water testing last week , the pools at Artillery Park Aquatic Centre remain closed.

This bacteria is reportedly a direct result of a pool fouling.  The pools have been hyper-chlorinated along with a deep clean by the City, who report 13 hours are required to circulate the chlorine through the filtration system.

Water tests by KFL&A Public Health were conducted again today (Monday, Nov. 13) and updates regarding the reopening of the pools will be posted on the City’s website.

According to a release, all registered aquatic program participants have been notified by phone.  Anyone registered in an aquatic program who has not received a phone call or message is asked to call 613-546-4291 ext. 1700 or 1800 to confirm your contact phone number and email address.

The City of Kingston states all pools are operated according to Provincial regulations for public swimming pools to ensure the safety of all users but pool foulings are not uncommon.
