Will Davan Pool Be Closed?

AJ:
Earlier this month, Harriman Associates, the
architectural and engineering firm that will design renovations for the junior
high school, completed an inspection of the pool that concluded years of
chlorinated water seeping through the concrete have, in some places, severely
rusted the steel at its core. “This weakens the structure, and over time it can
be a significant problem,” architect Dan Cecil wrote in an e-mail May 13 to
school and city officials.

I did not know there was a labyrinth beneath the pool. That is cool. If the pool goes, so should the rest of the building. Why else did we get a new school, due to the old one being in shambles. Make a nice park for the residents to enjoy.
