             (Thursday, September 10, 2009) -- The City has temporarily closed the Kailua District Park swimming pool.


Workers yesterday discovered a mechanical malfunction of a critical valve on the pumping system of the pool.  The City's consultant inspected and recommended that the pool pump and pool be shut down until repair to the valve is done.  The malfunction of the valve was due to vibration caused by the pump. 


The consultant and manufacturer have worked out a design and will provide an isolation joint to protect the valve.  The Department of Design and Construction is arranging to air freight replacement parts and anticipates that the work will be completed by this weekend. The City plans to have the pool reopened early next week.
