End of winter season at Bohmte’s outdoor pool
Bohmte (dpa/lni) – Fans of outdoor pools benefited throughout the winter in the municipality of Bohmte in the Osnabrück district: Because the renovation of the indoor pool takes longer than expected, the City administration of 13,000 inhabitants in the District of Dümmer decided Region, to open the outdoor pool in winter as long as possible. And since there was no snow or permafrost this season, the pool was open every day until Sunday. But now there must be a break: in order to prepare for the upcoming summer season, the doors will be closed for the next four weeks, according to the municipal administration.
Originally, Christmas Eve was supposed to be closed, but due to mild weather, the opening was repeatedly extended. Now, however, damage to wall and floor surfaces, where green and black algae can form despite chlorinated water, must be repaired. For hygienic reasons, a thorough cleaning of the pool is necessary, he said. In just over a month, on Easter Monday (April 18), the outdoor pool should start the summer season.
