The City of Clarksville and Kimley-Horn & Associates commissioned Counsilman-Hunsaker to provide swimming pool assessments of the four public swimming pools in Clarksville - Swan Lake, New Providence, Bel-Aire and Beach Haven. The audits identified items that were substandard in the pools, identified items not to current industry swimming pool design standards, or equipment not operating as designed, and to assist in defining a course of action regarding the future of all four of these facilities.
All four aquatic facilities have seen significant usage during the time they have been open from 26 years at Swan Lake to 55 years at Beach Haven. Because of this usage, there are many areas that need an update and/or renovation to keep the facilities operating at a sustainable level. Most equipment within the mechanical systems at the swimming pools need replacing and the intent of this audit was to help the city plan for renovation and/or replacement of these facilities.
The city was looking at long-term goals that need to be considered to maintain an excellent aquatic experience for its residents. At the end of the audit findings, Counsilman-Hunsaker noted that these pools have exceeded their lifespan. It is our recommendation that the city start to plan for a phased approach to renovating or replacing the four aquatic facilities.
