Midland, TX – Doug Russell Pool Study

Midland, TX

The team of Counsilman-Hunsaker and Kimley-Horn & Associates were retained by the City of Midland to conduct a Feasibility Study to determine the future of the Doug Russell Pool facility located at 900 N. Midland Drive. The pool was built in the 1950s and had been facing physical and functional obsolescence with only having a few upgrades since being built.

The consultants met with the staff and performed a visual inspection of the existing outdoor pool, bathhouse, and site determining pool expansion/relocation options. The goal of the study was to determine whether the facility should be renovated with pool mechanical system upgrades only or replaced with a new aquatic facility to include recreational amenities. Construction costs and operating expenses were provided for each option to ensure the city had the information needed to make a knowledgeable decision.

Aquatic Design & Engineering

In December 2013, the city decided to move forward with replacing the facility with a new modern aquatic center. The new $3.25 million aquatic center features a lap pool, lazy river, waterslides, children’s play structure, and a separate sprayground.
