Colfax pool navigates chlorine shortage
June 24, 2021
COLFAX — The Colfax city pool remained open after an equipment failure at a plant, which supplies chlorine for the local pool, causing a need to find a different type.
City Administrator Chris Mathis went to Ellensburg this morning to pick up a pallet of chlorine for use at the Colfax pool.
“We should be able to maintain our openness,” said Steve Larkin, of Colfax Public Works. “We are making it work.”
Larkin reported that the cost of the other chlorine is comparable.
Chlorine for pools is limited as it is being conserved for use in drinking water and wastewater treatment in this region.
