Pahoa pool scheduled to reopen Monday
The Pahoa Community Aquatic Center will reopen on Monday following a $1.5 million renovation.
The Hawaii County Department of Parks and Recreation will hold a blessing and rededication ceremony at 10 a.m. Monday at the pool. Following the ceremony, the swimming pool will be reopened to the public. Free swim for all ages will be offered Monday until 5:30 p.m.
Okahara and Associates Inc. designed the project, which was constructed by Isemoto Contracting Co. Ltd. Facility features include two new filtration pumps designed to shorten start-up time following an electrical outage, a new variable-frequency drive to improve pump efficiency and roof-mounted solar heating panels to help warm the pool water. Leaks also were fixed.
In addition to the contractor’s work, county employees repaired the roof, refurbished plumbing fixtures, repainted interior surfaces, refinished the keiki pool’s play fountain and tiling and performed various other maintenance tasks.
New operating hours will take effect Tuesday. Weekday hours will be 9 a.m.-5:30 p.m. The pool will be open weekends from 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Novice Swim Team registration will be held from 3-4 p.m. on Wednesday at the Pahoa Community Aquatic Center. A water aerobics class starts at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 4.
