Construction on the Lake Thoreau pool facility has finally begun! RA now has final approval for all the required permits after a seven-month delay, which, according to RA’s capital projects team, was unanticipated and unprecedented. RA expects the project to be completed in about 12 months, depending on weather and potential supply chain issues.
First steps in the project began with erosion and sediment control (installation of silt fences, silt socks, and catch basins). In addition, some trees were removed and demolition has begun. The pool will follow the design below, and replacement trees will eventually be planted.
