The Camp Verde Heritage Pool, owned by the Town of Camp Verde, will be getting a makeover later this year.

The Camp Verde Heritage Pool will undergo construction to repair the surface plaster, which is wearing away exposing concrete.The public pool, off of Apache Trail, was built in 1996 and has aged to the point where the plaster has started to wear away creating exposed concrete, which could potentially cause cuts on skin. Parts of the concrete underneath the plaster are showing signs of rust deposits where metal bars are used for reinforcement.

“The worn condition of the plaster is exposing the pool’s structural shell to corrosive pool chemicals thus compromising the structural integrity of the pool’s shell,” a report filed by the town stated. “The worn surface also promotes algae growth by giving it a rough surface to cling to, making it very difficult to clean the pool.”
