While annual improvements are made at the 56-year-old SEBCO Pool in Jefferson Township’s Laura Doerr Park, major repairs are needed to keep the pool open moving into the future.

Greg Bauer, president of the SEBCO Pool board of directors, said Jefferson Township supervisors commissioned a pool study last year to determine the work needed at the pool and offer upgrade options.

The study is required by organizations accepting grant applications, Bauer said.

Among the three options recommended in the study, one was a total overhaul of all systems at a cost of $8 million.

Bauer said the pool board would likely go with the least expensive option, at a little more than $1 million.
