Lincoln City Pool reopens but lighting project delayed
The Lincoln City Pool reopens Sunday, Oct. 11 after a nearly two‐week closure for annual fall maintenance. The work included rebuilding and recovering more than 50 filters for the main pool; acid washing, regrouting and replacing tiles in the large and small pools; replacing sand in the spa’s sand filter; annual service for the boiler, heat exchangers and chlorine injectors; and general cleaning and painting. In addition, new lane lines and starting block tops were installed in the main pool.
But due to a setback in receiving fixtures, work to replace halide lights in the natatorium and gymnasium was unfortunately delayed. The project is now tentatively planned for the week of Oct. 25‐30, with the majority of work taking place after 7 p.m. to avoid any further interruptions to the pool schedule. Funding for the $47,000 project was included in the Facilities Capital Fund in the City’s fiscal year 2015‐16 budget.
By replacing 30 halide lights in the natatorium and 18 halide lights in the gymnasium with high output LED fixtures, energy usage by the Community Center is expected to drop 60% to 80%. The project is also eligible for a sizable rebate from EnergyTrust of Oregon.
