Information on Caltech Aquatics - Inclement Weather

Inclement weather policies:

Rain/Wind:
• Heavy rain can make it difficult to see the bottom of the pool or beneath
the surface. If heavy rain causes bottom obstruction, pool will be cleared.
Wind can also cause safety hazards. If wind is observably strong or gusty
and causes bottom obstruction due to rippling, pool will be cleared until
bottom is visible.

Thunder/Lightning:
• Water must be cleared of all swimmers at the first clap of thunder or
lightning, or any other dangerous weather condition. The pool must
remain cleared for 30 minutes after the last clap of thunder or lightning
strike. Patrons will be asked to enter locker rooms or gym facility.

We want you to have a fun, safe, & enjoyable time with us. These
rules are for your safety. Failure to follow these rules may result in loss
of swimming pool privileges.
