United’s Water and Wastewater Department provided engineering services for upgrades to the Mark C. Honeywell Swimming Pool in Wabash, Indiana.
Overall, the $2 million construction project included replacing the junior pool with a new zero-depth entry pool with spray features and constructing a new equipment building to serve the new zero-depth entry pool. Upgrades to the larger existing pool were also included in the project, bringing both pools up to code and making them ADA compliant.
New features of the Mark C. Honeywell Swimming Pool renovation included the installation of an ADA lift, ADA compliant stairs, stainless steel gutters with integral water supply, new concrete deck, floor drains, diving boards, structural repairs, and lifeguard chairs. In addition, the concrete deck and fencing around the pool area were replaced and the floors in the locker rooms were coated.
The original Honeywell Swimming Pool opened to the public on May 30, 1961.
