Saugus Conservation Commission – Pool Closing Guidelines
As an educational reminder, we would like to advise Saugus residents
who have a pool, regarding the process of closing it for the season.
The Conservation Commission uses the following guidelines:
The chemical content of water in swimming pools can be detrimental to
wetland plants and animals.  To remove harmful chemicals, it is the owner’s
responsibility to adjust the PH to a neutral range (6.8 - 7.2) and to leave
pool water standing, uncovered, for a minimum of seven (7) days without
the addition of chlorine.  Drain water slowly, over several days, onto
vegetated surfaces and away from wetlands. 

Just a friendly tip from your Saugus Conservation Commission 
Any questions, please contact us (781) 231-4129
