Oct. 29 Workday at the Pool
Dear WBSC Members,
As a volunteer board, we are looking for ways to keep the pool looking nice and we need your help! We did an informal survey last year of potential new members. One of the biggest things is they had trouble seeing the pool and knowing where it was because of all the underbrush. Many hands make light work! If you are free on Saturday, Oct. 29, starting at 10 a.m. to whenever we finish or you need to leave; we need help with:
sawing down tree limbs
piling tree limbs
people with trucks hauling them to a city mulch site
raking up leaves
Supplies to bring:
your own work gloves
saws, safety gear
Come give any amount of time. Thanks for any help that you can provide in helping WBSC pool and grounds look the best for next summer!
To Our Community
On behalf of the West Broadway Swimming Club, we want to apologize for the recent discharge of pool water into Harmony Creek. We deeply regret our error.
We want to assure you that we all care deeply about our community and the environment. We have completely cooperated with the state Department of Natural Resources in its investigation.
As soon as we received the report from the DNR, we began taking action steps which include applying for a general permit from the DNR to allow us to discharge pool water, submitting a written statement explaining what actions have been taken to correct the violation and prevent a reoccurrence in the future, and contacting the City of Columbia to discuss the possibility of connecting the pool to the city’s sanitary sewer system. All these steps will be completed by October 19, 2016.
Our board is made up of volunteers who strive to provide a safe, fun place for families to swim. We would never intentionally harm the environment or the community. We are committed to working with the DNR to correct our mistakes and ensure that pool water is discharged safely in the future.
