The pool and water play area at Bolton Pool will be closed until the electric motor that runs the pool filter pump is replaced. It appears that lightning last night struck a fence, traveled to the pump room and hit the motor, said Tim Grant, the city recreation and parks director.
Grant said the city is working to locate a replacement motor and will get the pool reopened as fast as possible. “We will put signs up and leave some staff at Bolton to inform the public,” Grant said.
