Sprain Brook PoolSprain Ridge Pool opened Tuesday, July 4, 2017.

ELQ Industries of New Rochelle, the low bidder on the project, completed $7.8 million of repairs and renovations. The contract called for the bath house, spray park and recreation pool to be ready for swimmers for the 2017 Season.

And that is just the start. Once financing is approved by the Board of Legislators, work can begin on a second pool – this one geared for swimming laps, whether in competitions or just for fun.

Sometimes government doesn’t work as fast as everyone would like. When the bids were opened in the fall, 2016, they exceeded the county’s bond cap. That sent the project back to the drawing board to be redesigned. A staggered construction approach was adopted.

By doing one pool at a time, the county was allowed to stay under the bond cap, and get started on the first phase of construction right away. That means we are back on track for swimming at Sprain Ridge Park pool this summer.

Hope to see you there.
