Project Quick Facts

Budget:

$1,350,000 for Pool Leak Repair & Filtration House Renovation

$50,000 for Installation of Shade Canopy Structures

Contractor(s):

Branco Enterprises Inc.

Anticipated Completion Date:

Early June 2024

The Nixa Parks & Recreation department is working to repair and improve the pool at the Nixa Aquatics Center. In the fall of 2023, the City of Nixa hired a pool engineering company to work with staff to develop the plans necessary to replace all the underground re-circulating water piping for the pool. The replacement of these underground pipes will ensure the pool sees many more years of service for the community. Along with the pipe replacement, city council also approved several upgrades and other renovations.

These renovations include:

  • The replacement of all recirculation piping above and below ground
  • Improvements to the filtration system. This will revitalize the filters and replace all filter media and piping to ensure the filters are ready for another 20+ years of service
  • Additional concrete pool decking which will provide more patron space at the pool
  • Additional shade structures
  • A water play structure in the newly created wet deck space within the zero-depth area of the pool

Forming & Concrete Work

The Nixa Aquatics Center construction is underway, and the pool is set to open the first week in June. Currently crews are working on the area within the pool that will be elevated for piping and the new in-pool play structure, digging out the old pool deck and piping to make way for the new pipes, and the rehabilitation of the pool filters. Things are messy, however progressing as expected. It’s exciting to see the progress of this project!

Crews have formed up the elevated area and are working to pour the concrete in that area this week.  This area will house the shallow water play structure shown below.

Repairs Started

Nixa Parks and Recreation continues to work to get the pool repaired and ready for the upcoming pool season. Contractors began the onsite work today and have ordered the necessary materials needed for the project, which is very exciting! It is great seeing the work begin as we prepare for summer!

‌At this time, we would like to provide an updated timeline for the project. With the work started we anticipate the ability to open the pool sometime the first week of June. This work includes the replacement of all underground recirculation piping within the pool area, addition of concrete pool deck space with more shade structures, the installation of a water play structure, and rehabilitation of the pipes and filters within the pumphouse. We are excited for this work to begin and look forward to the renovations and upgrades to get the pool open once again and for many years to come.

Currently staff continues working to prepare for the upcoming pool season. The hiring of Lifeguards, Admission staff, and Swim Instructors is currently underway. Be on the lookout for information on aquatic programs including swim lessons, swim team, Jr. Lifeguards, season pass sales, and more. We are excited and look forward to seeing our community back in the pool this summer, and we hope you are excited about the renovations and additions at the pool!
