Bloodworm-like-objects spotted in Morrison Hill Swimming Pool

During the weekly cleansing session carried out at Morrison Hill Swimming Pool of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) today (December 1), a few bloodworm-like-objects were reportedly spotted in the footbath outside the male changing room.

The weekly cleansing session to thoroughly clean the pool complex and super-chlorinate the pool water started at 10 am.

When a suction pump was used to clean the return pipe of the footbath outside the male changing room around 3 pm, a few bloodworm-like-objects were reportedly spotted in the water drained away.

The staff of the swimming pool complex immediately inspected all three pools in the pool complex and found no other bloodworm-like-objects.

Staff of the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department were called to the pool complex for checking the filtration and sterilisation system and found it operating normally.

The pool water was sampled for testing and the water quality was up to the prescribed standards. Superchlorination was also carried out during the cleansing process.

The three pools were open as usual at 5 pm.

LCSD staff will closely monitor the water quality and the environment of the swimming pool complex.
