The long awaited reopening of a Santa Barbara County pool has happened, but it’s going to be a few weeks still before people will be able to make their first splash in it.
Cuyama’s community pool was re-dedicated yesterday after a four year closure. The pool opened in 2010, but two years after it opened, a major leak was noted. Experts determined that an underground drain pipe had become disconnected, which caused soil movement which cracked the pool. There was a legal fight, and redesign work, but now, Cuyama’s pool project is complete.
