CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – The indoor pool at Chicopee High School will be closed Saturday as a safety precaution.
Chicopee’s DPW said they expect more swimmers at Rivers Park pool, and they want to make sure they have enough lifeguards on-duty.
This comes after a 45-year-old West Springfield man died after being pulled from the Sarah Sherman Pool in Chicopee on Wednesday. At this time, police do not believe his death stemmed from any negligence by the pool staff.
The Chicopee High pool will reopen Sunday, August 9th.
