RCC Pool to Close for Emergency Repairs

Reston Community CenterThe indoor pool at Reston Community Center (2310 Colts Neck Road) will be closed next week for emergency repairs.

The Terry L. Smith Aquatics Center will be closed from Sept. 27 at 8 p.m. to Oct. 4 at 8 p.m. The pool will reopen to the public on Oct. 5 at 6 a.m.

The needed repairs come from a mistake made while the pool was re-caulked, during a “traditional” maintenance period from Aug. 24 to Sept. 13.

“The mixture of ingredients used for this specialized compound went wrong and the seal is not satisfactory. As a result, the pool will need to be drained, caulking removed and replaced as quickly as practicable,” Reston Community Center said in a statement.

Weekday swim classes will make up missed classes during the week in between swim lesson sessions. Weekend classes will only miss one class, and the RCC will give students a one-time “free-swim” pass.
