Low tide at Wave Pool

The Price City Desert Wave Pool will be experiencing low wave action for the next few months after a crucial piece of the wave-making system broke last week.

One of the blowers, a key part in the complex wave generation system, cracked and broke sometime last week, according to Tamara Gray, facilities manager with Price City. The age of the current system in place is thought to be one of the reasons for the failure.

As a result, waves created in the pool will be smaller than what can be produced when the system is running at full strength, Gray said.

The topic is listed on the agenda as an emergency purchase for the Price City Council to look at during their meeting on Wednesday evening. The approximate cost for the new blower to be purchased, built and installed could cost up to $32,000, according to Bret Cammans, Price City customer service manager. The new part is listed as being an emergency purchase due to it not being included within the city's budget, Cammans said.

If the new purchase of a new blower is approved by the city council, the time line to build the new part and have it put into operation could be anywhere between two to three months, Gray explained.

With the holiday season in full swing, activities at the pool will continue on as normal, Gray said. Upcoming activities include the Swim with Santa on Dec. 8 that runs from Noon to 8 p.m.
