Summer renovations are set for Associated Students, Inc. (ASI) to re-plaster and re-tile the Recreation Center’s lap pool, as well as add an American Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant ramp and make deck improvements.

The pool must be re-plastered every 10 to 20 years to maintain a safe and reliable swimming environment, according to ASI Director of Facilities Management Ron Skamfer.

“This was built in 1993, and our plaster job has lasted about 15 years,” Skamfer said. “There will be no design change, and the pool itself will not change in any significant way.” 

The projected timeline for the lap pool renovations is from June 1–Sept. 2. The budget of this project is $1.2 million, funded by ASI capital improvement reserves. 

The pool will be closed during construction, but ASI will add dedicated lap lanes and extended hours to accommodate swimmers. In addition, the Anderson Aquatic Center pool, normally used by the Swimming and Diving team, will be open for gym members to use during available hours.
