The scope of the Pool Drain Pipe Replacement Project was discussed at length at this meeting. The structural engineer firm is currently reviewing the pool area structural plans and the aquatic design company is working on putting together plans to replace the damaged drain pipe. The first draft of construction documents should be available to Recreation Services by November 6, 2017.
