Lake Newport's Forest Adams, Jack Biear, Chris Karim, and Sam Angel take  off in the Boys 8 & Under 25-meter Backstroke/Credit: RSTA Lake Newport Pool, which closed last week for repairs, will remain closed through Monday, July 21, Reston Association officials said.

The repair involves a mechanical failure within the main pool pump, including a  damaged bracket. The maintenance team has purchased two replacement brackets that are being shipped, but  they may not be a guaranteed match to existing components, RA says.

RA is also seeking to replace the entire pump, and that equipment may not arrive for several days.

Lake Newport, located at 11601 Lake Newport Rd. in North Reston, is Reston Association’s only 50-meter pool. It is the site of many community events, most of which have been relocated for the next week.

The Reston Swim Team Association Individual Medley, scheduled for Wednesday evening at Lake Newport, has been relocated to Lake Thoreau Pool, 2040 Upper Lake Dr.

All group swim lessons at Lake Newport this week will take place at North Hills Pool, 1325 North Village Rd.

Water aerobics held at Lake Newport Wednesday and Friday this week has been canceled.

RA aquatics staff says it will re-evaluate the situation by next Monday. If you have questions, call Phone: (703) 435-6530 or email [email protected].
