The main indoor pool at Ida Lee is closed due to a leak that was detected on 2.7.18.

Leesburg, VA (February 16, 2018) – Repairs to the drain vaults in the deep end of the main indoor pool at Ida Lee Park Recreation Center are expected to be completed within the next three weeks.

On Wednesday, February 7, the water level of the pool was falling rapidly. Upon investigation, staff discovered that the fibreglass lining of one of the pool’s three drain vaults was cracked. Once the pool was completely drained, engineering analysis determined that the leak had not caused significant erosion under the pool shell or any structural damage to the pool.

As a precaution against similar problems with the other two drain vaults, all three vaults are being reinforced with rebar and encased in new concrete. Once the concrete cures, new plaster coatings will be applied.

The pool is expected to reopen by Wednesday, March 7, 2018. Customers registered for aquatics classes should contact the Ida Lee front desk (703-777-1368) for any schedule changes to specific classes.
