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.
