Pool filled with water for the 1st test!

 The pool had its first water test on November 3.  Per Mike Nevenzel, who is on-site as the City’s representative overseeing construction, the pool was filled with 125,000 gallons of water in 4.5 hours.   This testing procedure is a critical step to verify the watertightness of the pool and impacts to the building as well as the City water system. Currently the results of the pool test are being reviewed by the contractor and designer so any necessary adjustments or improvements can be made before the building is closed in for winter.
