As you can see from the photos, the pool is still devoid of the liquid stuff that makes a pool a pool, but we’re told that there will be water back in it after the recently poured concrete surrounding the drains is allowed to cure and the pool is repainted. Painting is expected to begin next week but it’ll be another ten days after that for the paint to cure and tightly bond with the old surface. Then the water will be pumped back in. Re-opening is expected in the first week of April

Public Works Director Tim Gross says he’s convinced that something last month cut loose from inside the drain gallery and wedged in the drain valve, keeping it in an open position so the whole pool nearly drained. Gross says they’ve changed the entire drain system including re-routing it so it empties into the town’s waste water system. No more default option that aims it out the door and down to a nearby creek. He says that happened last month but the basement took a lot of the water and so only a small amount escaped the pool area. The water was absorbed in the ground, he says, before it got to any creek.

Meanwhile the city council is preparing a ballot measure to ask the public again whether we want a new pool since we know the old one is truly on its last legs. Three years ago a new pool failed by just over a hundred votes so supporters are hoping that this latest pool failure lends some credibility to the need for a new facility, preferably built next to the city recreation center. The current pool was built in the mid 1960s, nearly fifty years ago.
