Residents said on Friday that the water in their apartment pool was not safe.
Health officials, who inspected the pool on Wednesday, determined that it was not to reopen until it was cleaned up.
Residents said that they were concerned there were no “closed” signs near the pool, 10 Investigates’ Paul Aker reported.
Resident Alex Barrett said that the pool, which serves several hundred homeowners, was “disgusting.”
‘It would look like a bunch of crap,” Barrett said.
Resident Kelly Ullom and her children said that they would like to swim in the pool but know better.
“It’s not safe at all,” Ullom said. “Who knows what’s growing in it.”
Others called the pool a “cesspool,” Aker reported.
“Would you have your kids swim in that pool?” resident Eric Fritz asked.
10 Investigates obtained records form the health department that showed a resident complaint on May 31. The resident said that the pool was a public health concern.
Health officials said that they were unaware there were no signs at the pool stating that it was closed.
The management company in charge of the pool said that it was the pool manager’s job to put up signs.
Barrett said that she thought the explanation clouded the real issue.
“I just want my pool back,” Barrett said.
