Beware rules for temp pools

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

PEN­RITH Coun­cil has warned Mt Druitt and St Marys res­i­dents that tem­po­rary pools are “an ac­ci­dent wait­ing to hap­pen”.

Mayor Karen McKe­own said th­ese pools re­quired the same stan­dards of fenc­ing as per­ma­nent pools.

“If a pool can hold 300mm deep of wa­ter, it must have com­ply­ing safety fenc­ing and gates in place, as re­quired by law,” Cr McKe­own said.
