Eagle Springs Pool Bad Weather Policy

EAGLE SPRINGS POOL
BAD WEATHER POLICY

Everyone out of the pool! That's the last thing you want to hear when you're taking a dip in the outdoor pool.  Swimming is serious fun. So is safety. That’s why we want to remind you of our outdoor pool weather policies.  

When inclement weather is imminent and pool is open, our staff monitors incoming threatening storms very closely. Evacuation of the pool complex is required when audible thunder or visible lightning is observed or when lightning gets to ten miles distant. The pool must remain closed for 30 minutes after the last observed thunder or lightning before resuming swimming pool activities.

Following national guidelines regarding lightning and pool safety, both outdoor and indoor pools must be cleared during a lightning and thunderstorms.  That means all pools remain closed for 30 minutes after the last clap of thunder.  The pool enclosure must be evacuated to wait out the storm, sheltered areas are not considered safe. The reason for the pool evacuations is because lightning is unpredictable and when it is in the area it can travel large distances to meet conductors such as large bodies of water like pools.

LIGHTNING FACTS · Lightning kills more people in the U.S. than hurricanes and tornados combined. · The average storm is 6 - 10 miles wide and moves at 25 MPH. · 13 percent of all lightning incidents involve swimming, boating, or fishing. · Thunder is usually heard up to 12 miles from a lightning strike. In other words, if you can hear thunder, you’re in danger of lightning. · Lightning strikes can reach up to 10 miles.

If a threat of lightning is observed during operating hours, causing unsafe weather conditions, the pool will be cleared and closed. Staff will remain at the pool and attempt to reopen the facility as soon as possible. If it is not feasible to open after ONE HOUR the pool will remain closed for the day.

If there is severe inclement weather at the time of our scheduled daily opening (10 AM),  the pool will remain closed. If the severe weather has COMPLETELY CLEARED and no further severe weather forecasted by 2 PM, the pool will open at that time. If the pool closes any time after 6 PM, it will remain closed for the day.

There is another type of temporary pool closure tied to inclement weather which is when rain shower makes it impossible to clearly see the pool bottom. The pool deck will be closed and pool users may take shelter under cover and remain in the pool area. This kind of temporary closure comes and goes a lot quicker than thunder and lightning protocol because once the rain subsides and the pool bottom is visible the pool opens.

In some cases we may need to retreat the pool after excessive rainfall

As rain runoff collects on the pool deck, it can start to filter into the pool, carrying any outdoor contaminants along with it, the precisely calculated chemical concentrations of the pool can be thrown out of balance. Rainwater also affects the specific chemical gradients of the following:  pH levels, alkaline levels, calcium hardness, and chlorine levels.

Even though such imbalances are nearly impossible to detect with the naked eye, they could result in unanticipated adverse health effects. Obviously, this is a complication that both swimmers and lifeguards wish to avoid, which is why the pool may need to shut down for a period after rain for treatment.

Please follow all Lifeguards instructions in the event of bad weather!!

Pool Closed

 Due to the weather the pool is closed for today.  As long as weather permits the pool will open tomorrow at 10 am.  Thank you.

Fishing in Eagle Springs

Fishing in Eagle Springs

In Eagle Springs we have a lot of opinions on fishing in the lakes or ponds. The water that is surrounded by homes is on private property. The other two bodies of water are posted “No Fishing and No Swimming.” As you may have noticed we have two fountains down right now for expensive repairs. Both pump failures were caused by fishing line sucked in and wrapped around the rotating mechanisms.

I just wanted you to be aware of where part of our budget goes for repairs that could be avoided.

New Fiber Optic Construction

You may have noticed orange cable lines being installed. This is the main conduit for fiber optics being installed by Hargray for internet and TV service. The Tivoli Gates area in Eagle Springs will be the first area to have the services installed within the utility easements throughout the subdivisions. It will be installed later throughout Eagle Springs but no schedule is set. There is no cost to homeowners for the instatllation being done now. If a homeowner wants the service installed in their home they will pay for connection to the home from the main line as part of the service fee.

Eagle Springs HOA has no contract or control over Hargray. Their permissions were obtained through the State of Georgia then permits with the City. Any problems or concerns need to be addressed with Hargray at 1-866-531-9276. Eagle Springs welcomes any comments or suggestions our residents have as construction progresses but we have no control over the construction other than to contact Hargray also.

Tivoi Gates construction started in September 2020. Residents can expect some additional traffic and equipment along the streets. The installation will be by trenching and underground boring. Termination boxes will be in the ground, much like the water valve boxes in your yards. The flags placed in the ground are locates for buried utilites. Please do not remove them. Landscaping is to be restored to the way it was found at start of work. You might consider taking pictures of your yard before work starts.
