Pixabay Wohlen pool closure angers residents

For many that would be a trip to the pool, but residents in Wohlen in canton Aargau are angry and frustrated their local pool remains closed for unclear safety reasons.

Authorities say there’s a chance of electrical shock and federal safety teams have stepped in to say the pool must stay closed.

But residents are not being given any details of the exact problems and are demanding whatever is wrong is fixed quickly. To add to the local anger – the pool has already sold seasonal passes.

The pool would normally expect 2,000 visitors a day.
