The Salida Hot Springs Aquatic Center will not be open Sunday, May 13 as planned. Theresa Casey, Salida Recreation Director, said the snow on Monday set the pool staff behind as well as an unplanned valve replacement that took several days to replace. Casey said staff has not begun to fill the pools, which takes two days to fill, regulate the temperature and ensure chemicals are balanced.
“The crew here worked very hard,” Casey said, “to try and make the deadline, but circumstances kept us from reaching our goal. We are sorry to miss out on the Mother’s Swim Free event planned for Mother’s Day.” The event may be rescheduled.
