The Leisure and Cultural Services Department said today (June 14) that Sheung Shui Swimming Pool has been temporarily closed for cleaning and superchlorination following the discovery of a small amount of faeces in the pool.
It will reopen at 9pm today.
The department appeals to swimmers to be considerate and to keep our swimming pools clean. Swimmers are advised not to swim after a full meal and to use the toilet facilities if necessary before swimming.
