The quickest possible summary of the incredibly detailed and amazing report: swimming in the river = totally possible.
By altering a combination of flow rate, capacity, and open hours, + POOL’s water quality will meet state requirements for swimmers.
They made a few recommendations on our operational model to ensure a healthy swim experience:
• Open for 8 hours instead of 16
• Increase the flow rate of the kids pool by 2.5x
• Decrease swimmer capacity a bit to take less of a toll on the system (PS: showering is still required :))
While we wait for the City of New York to give us site access to start the design/build process, we’re continuing to ensure a safe swim for everyone.
