In response to residents’ complains, reflected in the very active discussion on theLoop about the temperature of the water at the Hommocks pool,
administered in the summer by the Town of Mamaroneck, representatives from the Town met school officials on Monday to test the water for themselves.
The readings in the indoor swimming pool at Hommocks Middle School? "We dropped thermometers into various spots, and it was 82 yesterday," Superintendent of Recreation Jill Fisher said on Tuesday. "I don’t think 82 is an unreasonable number."
Fisher said different types of thermometers were used and the temperatures were read at various depths.
Fisher said she, along with Town Administrator Stephen Altieri, were satisfied with the temperature but would continue to monitor it. Some lap swimmers, she said, even think it’s too warm.
Loop readers, from their comments, disagree, some very strongly, with the Town’s findings.
"The Town always tries to keep everyone happy, but unfortunately in this case it’s tough," Fisher said. "We are trying to find a balance for everybody."
