McGaugh Pool closing for repairs

Beginning on May 17, the McGaugh Pool located at 1698 Bolsa Avenue, Seal Beach, will be closed for maintenance and repairs.  The pool has been leaking a large quantity of water and is in need of immediate repairs in order to expand its useful life.

On April 12, the City Council authorized staff to contract with Commercial Aquatics Services, Inc., to repair the pool to address the high rate of water leakage, as well as replace all main drain covers in the large pool and skimmer equalizer covers in the small pool to meet compliance requirements with the Virginia Graeme Baker Act.

The City of Seal Beach is undergoing this repair project with the goal of re-opening the pool to the public for the summer aquatics programs beginning on Monday, June 21st.  The scope of work is estimated to take 4 to 6 weeks.  The general contractor for the project is Commercial Aquatics Services, Inc., a licensed California contractor with over 50 years of experience in the commercial pool industry.

We thank our pool patrons in advance for your patience and apologize for any inconvenience during the time of closure, and look forward to the pool re-opening on Monday, June 21
