The Aquatic Center at Oklahoma City Community College (OCCC) was constructed for the 1989 Olympic Festival. After the Olympic Festival, the swimming pools were enclosed with a steel superstructure and have had a long history of providing aquatic programming for the local area and region. The facility currently hosts eight high school varsity swim teams, United States Swimming teams, and Masters Swim teams. The Aquatic Center at OCCC is beginning to show signs of age and physical obsolescence. In order for the OCCC to continue its long history of aquatic programming, the facility will require reinvestment to keep current with industry programming and operational requirements.
In February 2013, Counsilman-Hunsaker performed an assessment of the existing conditions of the pool related to compliance with current health codes and industry standards as well as an examination of the overall condition of the pool and supporting systems including recirculation, filtration, and sanitation systems. The final report detailed the existing condition of the pool and its equipment, including life expectancies and recommended short-term and long-term repairs or replacements including cost estimates.
