$2.4 Million Cuyama Pool Getting $1.7 Million Fix

With a vote from the supervisors, reconstruction of the Joseph Centeno Cuyama Pool and Aquatics Complex — opened in 2010 but closed since 2012 after a leak and collapse — can get underway and put the center on track for reopening. Last year, the county’s insurer — on the hook for the repair costs — completed an investigation that attributed the leak to a disconnected pipe that pumped water into the ground, which collapsed the earth and cracked the pool. This week, the board authorized an agreement to have Ravatt Albrecht & Associates, Inc. serve as the architectural and engineering consultant. The fixes are estimated to cost about $1.7 million; the original cost of the complex was $2.4 million.
