Pumping Just Days Away
The City plans to commence emptying the South Pool starting August 1. Water will once again flow through the Equalization Channel to the North Pool, courtesy of several large pumps.
The pad is next to the public access area for the South Pool. It remains to be seen how loud the pumps are. The City said it would maintain access to the South Pool during pumping. The schedule approximates a regular workday, with the public having to leave around 5:00 or 6:00 pm. That was the city's position several weeks ago.
The pictures are from July 21 when I sailed a light air longboard and a 7.5 square meter Naish sail. I doubt I get much workweek time on the water, but hope to chronicle the draining of the South Pool on weekends.
