The owners of Splashdown Waterparks at the Tower Park leisure complex in Poole have issued a statement about the evacuation of the site on Saturday 29th March.
The firm said the decision to evacuate the building and the rest of the Tower Park site was taken as a precaution, in the interests of public safety. The building was checked by Dorset Fire & Rescue Service and staff. Splashdown is open today.
The area surrounding the building was evacuated following reports of a suspected chemical spill. The company has said the decision to evacuate was made after the discovery of a malfunction of the dosing injector in a plant room upstairs.
No one was affected apart from the disruption and inconvenience, for which we apologise. All pools have chemical dosing machinery and if there is any suggestion that there is a problem then we take it very seriously;an alarm triggered and in the circumstances it was better to be safe and get it checked out properly in connection with the emergency services.
A small leak was detected and appropriate action taken to clear it up and repair the equipment. Following the repair and testing of the equipment I am pleased to be able to say that we will be open as normal again tomorrow (Sunday 30th March 2014).”
– Jackie Richmond, Splashdown co-owner
