Alfond Municipal Pool

Waterville, Maine (USA)

Only appropriate for a town named Waterville, Myrtha Pools has completed work on an old – but now new! – community aquatic centre. Myrtha’s RenovAction team was contracted to rethink and revitalize the 68-year-old Kiwanis pool which has now been transformed into the recently opened, Alfond Municipal Pool Complex.

Myrtha’s RenovAction technology made it possible to retrofit a new tank into the old facility, quickly and with minimal demolition. Our proprietary renovation process utilizes our patented, modular, stainless-steel panel system.

In Waterville this meant that an aging, and failing pool, was not only returned to ‘like-new’ condition but also upgraded in many ways! The new 6-lane, 25 m pool is now connected to a leisure area where Myrtha’s “Zero Entry” offers beach-like access and is populated with interactive water games for kids, and a relaxation area for adults.

To call it a renovation doesn’t do it justice… it’s a new facility,” said Waterville Director of Public Works and Recreation Matt Skehan. “All the equipment, the filtration system, the pumps, the liner, the shade structure, the kiddie pool, it’s all new.”

The facility is now home to a menagerie of ‘little squirts animals’, a spray pool, a slide pool, two kiddie pools… and a whole community of very happy swimmers and splashers. Honestly, if the town wasn’t already called Waterville, we’d have had to rename it.
