Pool opening delayed by coating issue

Water slide at Albion Family Aquatic Center.Opening of the new Albion Family Aquatic Center will likely be delayed into next week due to a problem with the aggregate coating of the pool floor in the zero depth entry area. The coating was found to be inconsistent, and therefore parts of the area were slippery, which could create a liability issue for the city.
The pool has been drained down to apply the coating, which must cure for three to four days before the pool is refilled.
The work, and necessary re-inspection, could delay the pool opening into next week.
