UNH Outdoor Pool Scheduled to Open June 22

DURHAM, N.H. – The outdoor pool at the University of New Hampshire is scheduled to open for the season Saturday, June 22, 2013. The opening was delayed one week to accommodate necessary maintenance and repairs.

The additional week is needed to make modifications to the current drain, which is not in compliance with a recently revised federal law. The Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act requires an anti-entrapment system with emergency shut off to be part of the drain.

“We’re eager to open the pool for the season, especially given the recent stretch of hot and humid days, but safety is always our number one priority,” said Stacey Hall, director of Campus Recreation at UNH. “Once the repair work is complete we will begin to fill the pool with the goal of a June 22 opening.”
