Claremont begins demolishing old outdoor pool
The declining use of the outdoor pool by the public didn’t warrant a costly renovation, according to City Manager Guy Santagate.
A resident who came in with the low bid of $20,000 is demolishing the pool.
The cinder blocks are to be pushed into the concrete pool, the pool will be filled and the ground will be re-sloped and seeded, Neilsen said.
The pool, which was typically open for just eight weeks out of the year, closed two summers ago because the large amounts of water leaking made chlorinating the pool properly difficult, creating a potential public health issue. The 35-year-old gutter system appeared to be the source of the pool leaks.
