The Department of Parks and Recreation has closed the Old Wailuku Pool due to a leak. Park staff noticed the leak yesterday (July 23) and measured a seven inch water loss over a 12 hour period.
It is estimated if the pool continues to lose water at that rate it will be drained empty within seven days. Old Wailuku Pool was built in 1930 and repairs to the pool may be substantial. In the meantime, the pool will be closed until further notice. New Wailuku Pool is not affected by this closure and will remain open for the public’s use.
