The Richardson Swimming Pool, located at Schofield Barracks, is 100 meters long by 25 meters wide and was constructed in 1944. The pool is used for soldier training, scuba training, competitive swimming, and rehabilitation/therapy. In the 1970’s, changes were made to the pool finish, filtration and re-circulation system and chemical feed system. Improvements have been made to the pool and mechanical systems over the years with the most significant renovation in 2004. Okahara and Associates, Inc., authorized by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, commissioned Counsilman - Hunsaker to provide a swimming pool audit in November 2011. The U.S. Army Corps utilized the audit to assist in identifying items that are substandard or not operating as designed. Counsilman - Hunsaker staff visited the site and evaluated the existing swimming pool and its respective mechanical systems and provided a report detailing deficient items and an opinion of probable cost for the items needing repair and/or replacement.
Pleased with the results from the audit, Counsilman-Hunsaker was then retained to produce construction documents for the repair of the swimming pool and mechanical systems, but due to lack of funding, the project is currently on hold.
