News : Stacy Center in Princeton to re-open pool early next month, hopefully

Following the lifting of water conservation measures at Princeton, an update has been provided on the status of the Stacy Multi purpose center.



The Stacy Center Multipurpose pool looks to be opening up the first week of October. The center’s indoor heated pool has been closed
since the first part of August due to water conservation the City of Princeton placed on the community; and due to a water leak in the filler tube in the deep end of the pool. The Stacy Center pool was losing 2,000 gallons of water a day due to this leak, so while the pool was shut down for conservation, what water that was left in the pool was drained, the leak found and repaired by a company from Johnston, Iowa. The company also cleaned the pool.
Gary Campbell of Mercer was hired to repaint the pool floor and walls, along with the steel ceiling beams above the pool. The paint had to cure for fourteen days before the pool could be filled. A skid free paint is being applied
to the area around the pool this week and part of next. The pool has begun to fill, and the city of Princeton has asked the center to fill it slowly. It is estimated it will take the pool one to three days to fill completely, allow the water to heat to its regulated temperature, and another week for the chemicals to balance the
p-h being put in the water to take effect. The board is estimating that the Stacy pool will be reopening the first week of October, pending no new developments.
When it does open up, promoters plan on a “Free Swim/ Open House” showing off the pool facility’s new look. There will be an announcement made
on KTTNwhen this happens The board also reports all memberships are being extended the amount of time the pool has been shut down. The board, again, apologizes for the inconvenience this has caused the center’s members and community, AND they appreciate the patience and understanding shown during this time.
