Pool Continues to be Filled and Tested at Sandwich High School

183644298SANDWICH – The swimming pool at Sandwich High school continues to be filled and tested to make sure it holds water without leaking.

Sandwich Building Inspector Paul Spiro will have to issue an occupancy permit before the pool can be used.

“I haven’t heard anything from the facility’s director,” he said. “So it would be my assumption and I’m not in a position to make assumptions, but when you don’t hear anything in this regard, generally that’s good news.”

Voters approved the spending of $1 million on pool repairs over a year ago after the pool was closed in February of 2013.

The repairs include a new heating and ventilation system along with repairs to the pool’s tiles.

“It’s been a long time but you always air on the side of safety and hopefully any of the drains or anything that may have been leaking have been taken care of at this moment,” Spiro said.

Spiro said as long as the pool is holding the water as it is supposed to be the pool should be issued its occupancy permit.

“We are just ironing out a couple of minor details here and there but that wouldn’t negate them from using the pool,” he said.

The school began filling the pool two weeks ago after Spiro gave the “thumbs up.”

Spiro received an engineering report from a company that conducted sonar testing beneath the pool to detect any structural defects and soils, and it came back negative.
