Swimming pool needs additional funds By Caroline Van Loh Sentinel Tribune The approach of winter and the snow sports winter brings are on the minds of young and old alike. Cooling off at the local swimming pool definitely isn't needed, and yet now is the time to prepare for next summer's pool activities. Westbrook's swimming pool has sprung a leak. This past summer, 10,000 to 20,000 gallons of water leaked out of the pool system each day. According to an estimate given by Palmer's Sunset Swim, Inc., of Rogers, Minnesota, cost of repairing the leak is about $10,000. Stopping the leak will be a 3- step procedure. Step one involves saw cutting around the perimeter of the pool at the intersection of steel walls and concrete bottom. The next step is to chip out concrete at the panel line and caulk with epoxy pool caulk. To complete the job, workers would cement in repaired areas and blend with the existing pool shell. The city can handle routine maintenance, but the time has come to hire outside help for more exten- sive work on the pool. A group of concerned Westbrook residents met last week to formulate plans for a pool fundraiser that would help pay for the necessary repair work.
