This is Todd Petronio, Director of Athletics. As you are all aware, the North Haven Town Pool has been closed since Monday. This morning I met with the town pool director and the recreation director regarding the status of the community pool. The pool remains closed today, however I would like to share some information regarding the test results from the water. The results from the lab detected a substance referred to as an anionic surfactant, which has been described to me as a form of detergent. These levels are minimal and just above mandated reporting limits. In keeping with the practice of student safety, we are proactively keeping the pool closed until the substance can be removed from the pool.
Today’s practice will be held at Hamden High School, since Hamden Hall is not available today. The bus company will pickup students at 2:40pm and return the team to North Haven High School at approximately 5:00pm. We are very gracious to both schools for accommodating our swimmers while we are temporarily displaced from our home pool. Our hope is to be back swimming in North Haven by Monday.
On the website, I have attached a copy of the results of the pool analysis from the lab and a report containing an explanation of the substance. Both of these documents can be located under the heading of "Documents". They were both forwarded to me this morning from Mr. Delvecchio, the town pool director.
If there are any questions, please feel free to contact me at the high school.
I wish you a great evening and good luck to the team in tomorrow’s meet.
Director of Athletics
