Kentfield Pool Undergoing Additional Repairs
KENTFIELD, Calif.—May 13, 2009—Last night, at its regular monthly meeting, the College of Marin’s Board of Trustees approved a contract with Aquatic Design Group to prepare bid documents for additional repair work on the school’s Kentfield pool, which has been closed since 2008 for major modernization. This new scope of work, not included in the original project, includes retrofitting of drains mandated by the recent Lauren Graeme Baker law, as well as repairs to recently discovered leaks in the scupper system. New pumps and other mechanical system upgrades have already been completed as part of the original modernization project, which will wrap up by August. The additional pool repairs are expected to be completed by mid-fall 2009.
Summer swim programs, meanwhile, will continue at the College’s Indian Valley Campus in Novato.
