The City of Williamsport, Pennsylvania, commissioned MKSD Architects and Counsilman-Hunsaker to provide swimming pool audits in June 2010, for the City of Williamsport's three outdoor swimming pool facilities: Memorial Pool, East End Pool and Brandon Pool.
The city commissioned this audit to identify items that were substandard and do not meet current Pennsylvania Department of Health public swimming pool requirements. In addition, the audit defined a course of action regarding the future of the existing pools and included an opinion of probable construction cost for recommended repairs.
As a result of the audit, the City of Williamsport retained the consultant team to provide options for renovation or replacement of the city's three obsolete pools. Options varied from an interactive sprayground to full replacement and enhancement with an outdoor small family aquatic center or an outdoor medium family aquatic center. Each option focused on the goals of the city and the needs of the community.
