Today, workers began applying a new liner to the Verona Pool. The process involves spraying on a compound made from marble dust and white cement, and then carefully smoothing it, inch by inch. Some of the workers even had sponges strapped to their shoes to aid in the work.
The deep end was done this morning and all work should be finished by Saturday evening. Then Len Waterman, the manager of the Verona Buildings and Grounds Department, will begin to fill it. Then the pool will have 35 days to warm up before we all jump in on Memorial Day weekend.
And remember, if you have not already sent in your pool membership form, you have until May 4 to do so without paying a late fee. As we noted earlier this month, pool fees have risen slightly this year.
