Lemont Park District installs new heaters in Centennial Pool

Published: Thursday, May 9, 2013 4:42 p.m. CDT

LEMONT – The Lemont Park District has completed installation of two outdoor pool heaters at the Centennial Outdoor Aquatic Center.

The heaters are part of a green technology update. The park district, along with its architect, Studio GC, worked with Green Hills Library Systems to secure the donation of the two heating units before last year's summer season. The project took a year of work with architects, contractors, utility suppliers and the Illinois Department of Public Health.

The outdoor pool season starts with the Centennial Pool Season Pass Holder “Member’s Only” opening party on May 31. The pool opens to the public on June 1.
