Pool WAS temporarily Closed due to Phone issues Wed July 5th, 2017

  2:40 PM update:  The pool is now open again!  A temporary line has been dropped until a proper AT&T install can be performed.  So the pool is now officially open.  However the pool will close again at 4 PM to prepare for the 1st swim team HOME meet of the year.  

  Come on out and Cheer on the MARC Sharks Swim team tonight!

The pool’s phone [ (919) 851-8821(seasonal) ] is currently down, causing the pool to be closed.  Wake County pool regulations require the pool have an operating LANDLINE in order to be open.  I know in the world of almost everyone having a mobile phone…. but that is the rules by which we have to operate under.

  The phone service provider has been called and a ticket opened for immediate service.  

We hope the pool closure is of limited duration, but it is something beyond our control at the moment.

 

Why does the pool sometimes close unexpectedly?

  The pool must close under certain circumstances. If there is thunder, the lifeguards must clear the pool until there has been a 30 minute period with no thunder. If there is a “biological incident” in the pool, the pool must be cleared while additional sanitizing chemicals can be added and have had a chance to work. In all cases, the lifeguards will inform swimmers when they may return to the pool.  If the pool must be closed due to mechanical problem,  chemical imbalance, or telecommunication issue, the lifeguards will inform swimmers and we will make every effort to inform the broader membership via email or Remind App message.

Friday Family Fun Night

  Join us tonight (Friday June 30, 2017) for

Moana (PG)

Moana (PG) 1 hr 47 min

  The movie will start at sunset(ish) at the MARC tennis courts. Bring your chairs, flashlights, blankets, and cash for Hut snacks.  We are hoping the weather holds out – we have missed the last 2 weekends due to weather. 

   Fresh popcorn will be available at 50 cents a bag, or 3 for $1. The movie is free and open to all members and guests. Non-members are welcome to join the fun too, so feel free to invite some friends along! Children must be accompanied by an adult.

See you there!

Bridge/Culvert work nearly completed

 Mid-morning today (Friday 6/30) the workmen on site said the road will be open by end of day.  They have quite a crew and a lot of equipment there, so things are moving fast.  Culvert is in, retaining wall is rebuilt.  Mason worker was finishing up with the cap stones.  They are going to put some rip rap on the banks (upstream side).

  They will need to come back on Monday to finish with clean-up.
 
 After the completion of the project, the pool board will review the work and see what beautification Improvements we can do:

  • plant shrubs
  • add bridge edge posts
  • maybe install a Star Trek type transporter 🙂

  We would love to have guardrails installed, but TOC work was replacing in kind, and therefore nothing additional like guardrails were considered.  

 

Bridge/Culvert work to start Tues 6/27 – Alternate paths to pool

   (original post updated at 4 PM on 6/27 to reflect updated information)
  Town of Cary (TOC) Repairs to the Bridge/Culvert over the stream between the parking lot and the pool has  started today (Tuesday 6/27).  We will be without a bridge for perhaps a couple of days.  Access to the parking lot(s) are now Closed.  TOC has said that their plan is to be finished on or before Friday June 30th.  TOC is aware of the impact to the pool, but this is an emergency situation, and due to scheduling and materials delivery, this was the soonest repair work could start.  Due to this repair work interruptions to water, power (phone or gas) may occur.  Interruptions to Water, Power or Phone may result in the pool having to close. 

 In order to access the pool, you may take the Sidewalk path from Braeloch starting at the playground (Yellow on the map) -OR- a path through the woods starting at the pump house on Medfield Road bridge (on the southward side of Medfield road between Westhaven Dr and Robbie Dr) (Green line on Map).  As there will be very limited parking at these locations, please consider carpooling if possible.

  I am not an artist, but I did the best I could in short order taking a snapshot from Google Maps.

   For members taking the Braeloch path, please remember to ONLY park on one side of the road along Prynnwood.

  Note for those parking and taking the Medfield Road path, Do not park in front of or block Aqua’s  vehicle access to the Pump house – you risk being towed at your expense.  Thankfully, Mr Richard Hill has graciously said that he will allow parking in his little side yard strip which is right across the road from the pump house.  For roadside parking please park Only on one side of the road.

  The Blue squiggle is the approximate path of the stream and Red indicates the bridge work.

Alternate Routes

Bridge from Parking lot to pool CLOSED to Vehicle Traffic

Due to  6/16 – 6/17 Flood damage (sinkhole), the bridge from the front parking lot over the stream to the pool is Closed to Vehicle traffic.  The pool board is looking into and working with Town of Cary officials to determine what repair/replacement options there are.

  It is suggested that you be careful when walking near the sinkhole.
