Kapaa pool to remain closed through November

KAPAA, KAUAI (HawaiiNewsNow) - County officials announced that the closure of the Kapa'a swimming pool facility has been extended to the end of November due to a major change in the scope of work for the project.

Originally, the plans called for the demolition of the existing structure with portable restrooms and changing areas to replace it.

Upon further research, it was determined that the facility could be rehabilitated at a much lower cost, approximately $250,000 less than originally budgeted, and would require nearly half the time to complete.
