Mechanical problems have temporarily closed Cooper Pool in Andalusia.

Director of Leisure Services Dwight Mikel said the pool will be closed today, Thurs., June 23, and tomorrow, Fri., June 24.

City workers are waiting for parts to repair a pump, he said, which affects the ability to properly chlorinate the water.

All swimming lessons have been cancelled for this week, as has tonight’s swim league practice. Those enrolled in swimming lessons will get a free week, he said.

“We’re going to pretend like this week didn’t happen and start over next week,” he said. “If someone has scheduling conflicts with that, they can move to the third two-week session.”

No scheduled pool parties should be affected, he said.

Meanwhile, Coleman Pool will be open to accommodate public swimming both days Cooper is closed.
