Bexley Pool Responds to Regional Cryptosporidiosis Incidents

Precautionary Steps Taken by the Bexley Rec Dept. Given Regional Crypto Outbreak

Given Franklin County Public Health’s decision to declare an outbreak of Cyrptosporidium, a germ that causes diarrhea, in the greater Columbus area, we would like to reassure the community about the steps we take to help insure that our pool is safe and sanitary. The Health Department requires that we check our chemical levels every 4 hours.

Here at the Bexley Pool, we: 
•Check those levels continuously each and every day. 
•Check before we open, after we close. 
•Check every 90 mins while open. 
•Maintain a free chlorine level, chlorine that is actively disinfecting the pool, well above the 1ppm (parts per million) that is required by the health code.
•Super chlorinate the pools overnight 1-2 times per summer to help make sure that all pools are completely clean and safe to swim in.

For more information, please call the Bexley Recreation and Parks Department at (614) 559-4300 or check our Facebook Page for the latest updates.

Notice: Traffic Pattern Change under study for Fair and Cassingham

This article has been updated to reflect a delay in implementation of this change.

Based on a review of traffic conditions at Fair and Cassingham, the City's Service Department has worked in conjunction with the City's contracted traffic engineer to design a changed configuration at the intersection of Fair and Cassingham.  The pattern change as currently proposed would result in a 3-way stop involving Fair and the portion of Cassingham to the north of Fair.  Cassingham to the south of Fair would yield to oncoming traffic on Fair once installed.  This new configuration would streamline what was a "dog-leg" intersection with several blind spots.  

The City is continuing to receive feedback on the proposed change.  Once the finalized change is designed, installation would occur during a break in the school calendar in order to allow driver acclamation prior to the return of students to the Cassingham campus.

A diagram of the current proposal for the change to the intersection is below.
