Davis city council to fix pool leak earlier than scheduled


At Tuesday night's Davis City Council meeting, officials decided to move up the city pool's leak repairs over concerns of water waste.

The leak is wasting more than 6,000 gallons of water a day. A city staff report recommended fixing the leak on Nov. 17 to avoid disrupting the practice schedule of the swimming groups that use it.

At the meeting, council members urged the repairs be made on Oct. 29. Swimming teams made arrangements with other local facilities as to not interrupt their schedule.

"Staff has been working with the contractor and the user groups to start the repairs sooner," Davis Mayor Dan Wolk said.

Davis resident Jack Bernhardt thinks waiting four more weeks to address the problem is unacceptable.

"It's crazy. They can't let it go on," Bernhardt said.

The city has known about the problem for at least two months.
