In a release from the Y, they say their Meadville downtown location is closed for the remainder of the day due to a mechanical issue with their chlorine pump.
Childcare was evacuated to First Baptist Church.
Chlorine levels in the water never reached hazardous levels since the malfunction occurred in the pump room. There is no need to be concerned if you used the downtown YMCA pool earlier today.
Members are instructed to use either Vernon or Cochranton for their fitness needs.
The Downtown YMCA will re-open using normal business hours tomorrow.
