Kailua-Kona swimming pool to reopen (Oct. 6)


The Department of Parks and Recreation announces the Kona Community Aquatic Center (KCAC) will be reopened at 8 a.m., Saturday, Oct. 6.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, a complex inspection intended to ensure peak operating efficiency is taking longer than expected to complete, preventing the swimming pool from being reopened as anticipated on Wednesday, Oct. 3.

Every effort is being made to ensure the work is finished promptly.

The department apologizes for any inconvenience the temporary shutdown may cause and thanks pool users and the general public for their patience.

For more information, call the KCAC staff at 327-3500.

    The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) conducted a study of swimming pool accidents in Arizona, California, Florida and other states where pools are common, and found that 65 percent of the accidents occurred in a pool owned by the victim’s immediate family, and that 77 percent of the victims had been missing for five minutes or less when they were found in the pool. Children between age 1 and 3 made up 75 percent of the victims in pool submersion or drowning accidents. Based on the results of their study, CPSC developed their swimming pool safety guidelines. One of the CPSC’s conclusions was that “the best way to reduce child drowning in residential pools was for pool owners to construct and maintain barriers that would prevent young children from gaining access to pools.”
