Weirton pool closed for repairs


On Tuesday, officials announced the Starvaggi Memorial Pool in Weirton is closed to the public.

Park Board Manager Coty Shingle told 7News heavy rains over the weekend caused extensive damage to the filter room, which balances PH and chlorine levels in the water.

Shingle said the damage will cost the city thousands in repairs, but crews are working as fast as they can to resolve the issue. 

Officials ask Weirton residents to be patient during this.

Pass holders can use the Weirton Community Center until Starvaggi reopens.

Officials are hoping to reopen the pool on Friday.
