The Cheshire Community Pool has been closed since the early fall as the Town officials waited on a new protective bubble covering to be constructed.
That is now up and, on Monday, Feb. 13, it is expected that the pool will once again open for business.
In January of 2011, the original bubble covering, used in the fall and winter months to protect swimmers from the elements, collapsed under the weight of snow and ice. The bubble remained down for the rest of the year as officials struggled with what to do with the facility.
The pool reopened in the spring, however a decision on whether to replace the bubble was delayed as officials waited to hear what compensation they could expect from the Town's insurance company. When it was finally decided that a new bubble would be erected, it was believed that the covering could be erected before the end of last year.
However, delays occurred and, ultimately, the bubble was not installed at the facility until last week.
Now, with the bubble fully operational, officials expect the first day open will be Monday, barring any unforeseen issues popping up, officials stated.
