OURAY, Colo. — Managers of the newly renovated Ouray Hot Springs pool are working to keep the water temperatures hot.

The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reports swimmers expecting to soak in the hottest pool at 104 to 106 degrees have found temperatures fluctuating from the mid-80s to the upper-90s. Even the lap lanes are registering about 10 degrees cooler than the goal.

Ouray Resource Director Rick Noll says the city now has to wait for two different contractors to figure out the issue.

The city hired Cloward H20, of Salt Lake City, to design the facility, while FCI Constructors Inc., of Grand Junction, handled the construction.

Noll says there’s no threat of a lawsuit against the two entities and everyone is cooperating to get the situation resolved.
