Pool work 1.jpg

The City of Murray is aiming for Memorial Day weekend to reopen the three swimming pools at Central Park, and preliminary work began on the project Thursday. Erik Watson, above right, owner of Erik Watson Concrete, and employee Dustin Guidry are seen sawing and wedging open the concrete around the intermediate pool to allow access to the pipes underneath. Below, Justin Pounds, vice president of the project’s general contractor, Steele & Allbritten, stands in mud as he rakes wet leaves out of the deep end in preparation for eventually replacing the liner, among many other repairs.
