The Town of Camp Verde has finished renovations on the Camp Verde Heritage Pool, including work to bring the pool into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Lifeguard and manager Cole Rickey demonstrates how the handicapped-accessible ramp works on  Saturday, Aug. 17. Rickey uses a hollow wheelchair that fills with water as the swimmer descends, making it fully submersible and preventing haphazard floating.The public pool was built off of Apache Trail in 1996. More than 15 years old, the pool had aged to the point where the plaster had started to wear away.

The exposed concrete occasionally caused cuts on skin. Parts of the concrete underneath the plaster where metal bars are used for reinforcement were beginning to leave rust deposits.

For the full story, see the Wednesday, Aug. 21, edition of The Camp Verde Journal.
