Demolition of old pool underway
The slide at the O.B. Nelson Park outdoor public pool can be seen broken into pieces and resting on the ground. The pool closed before the 2012 summer season because of safety concerns with the water chemicals delivery system, structural cracks in the concrete pool walls and floor cracks. Out-of-code compliance issues with disinfectant residual, water recirculation rate and turnover were also reported at the time. Drish Construction Inc. began demolition of the pool site Monday.
