Village Board approves monitoring device for pool pump after flooding in school basement
An overnight power failure in part of the Village in July knocked out the electricity in the school causing the Village pool pumps to fail, which led to flooding in the pool area basement.
Four of the larger motors ended up under water, according to Village DPW head Brett Edgerle. The motors had to be removed and taken to an electric motor repair shop where they were dried out and reassembled at a cost of $2,500. Fortunately, the motors still worked once they were dried out.
Edgerle told the Village Board that this was at least the second time this has happened that he was aware of, and requested approval for a monitoring device that would alert someone of pump failures in the future. The Village approved the request at a cost of time and materials not to exceed $3,500.
