TRANSFORMER/FEEDER EXPLOSION LAST NIGHT AT TOWN PARK CLOSES POOL TEMPORARILY
Release Date: July 22, 2009
Last night there was a big sound at the Anthony Veteran Town Park complex – a transformer or one of the underground legs that feed electricity exploded. As a result, the pool (and kitchen which serves the nutrition program) is out of power, temporarily. Unfortunately, we have to shut down the pool until we can restore power. Town staff worked last night and contacted electricians. We had a meeting early this morning and are trying to identify the cause of the problem and to have the problem corrected asap.
Seniors will most likely receive cold meals for the remainder of the week. Over 800 children (Greenburgh rec and Edgemont rec) receive daily swim activities at the camp. We are planning land based camp activities. A company has been hired to try to locate the electrical problem. Once power is restored it will take 24 hours to re-open the pool. An update will be provided by this evening as to the status of the repairs.
We apologize for any inconvenience. However---these problems happen.
