Good news for swimmers: After being out of action last weekend, Lake Audubon Pool will re-open Saturday.
Mike Leone, Reston Association communications director, says Dominion Energy has finished its work to repair damage to a drainage pipe caused by a subcontractor. The damage was caused when the worker was digging a trench between junction boxes, said Laura Kowalski, Reston Association’s deputy director for recreation.
“Lake Audubon Pool has been repaired and will open [Saturday] on its regular schedule,” Leone said Friday morning. “Dominion Energy and their contractors repaired the damage and the bathhouse will be cleaned and sanitized today so it’s ready for member use tomorrow.”
The problem was first discovered when standing water was found in the bathhouse last week. A blockage in the drainage pipe was later cleared by Roto-Rooter Plumbing and Drain Service, but a crack in the pipe was found that forced the pool to be closed until repairs were completed.
The work was done at no cost to Reston Association, Leone said.
The pool will be open from noon to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
