Wet Deck installation underway at municipal pool

Hoping to have the new "Wet Deck" ready for use by Independence Day, City of California employees put down the concrete surface. The "Wet Deck" kit was approved by the California City Council at the June meeting to be installed in the general area of the old kiddie pool. A dozen nozzles on a flat surface spray water for enjoyment of the younger set.

City employees were hard at work last week on the Wet Deck approved for installation by the City of California Board of Aldermen at its June 4 meeting.

Proving nothing is simple, a pool technician in SCUBA gear works in the filtering area to put in a new filter and valve to allow the "Wet Deck" to work. The entire system is separate from the indoor pool.

The Wet Deck consists of a concrete pad with spray nozzles and a recycling drain and filtering system completely separate from the swimming pool. Water, drain and electric lines had to be installed and the surface prepared for young people.

Water and Wastewater Supervisor Kyle Wirts said the goal is to have it in operation on July 4.
