A crew from Concrete Coatings Unlimited prepared their grinding equipment at the Belle Plaine Aquatic Center before taking down a small layer of oxidized concrete. As a solution to rusted concrete ties showing through the area of the deck, the company will lay multiple layers of cement-like and chemical coatings to seal the deck. According to Belle Plaine Public Works Superintendent Al Fahey, the coatings will block out further rust and other issues in the concrete from showing through the deck. The cost of the process was unavailable pending negotiations; however, the total will be made public once costs are finalized, Fahey said. The city, which is currently in the litigation process with the pool’s contractor Bradbury Stamm Construction, will look to count the coating as a loss. En route to opening, crews assessing the pool’s leak resistance also ran tests, which were scheduled to take place immediately after the pool’s construction wrapped up last year. Pending the results of a series of tests, Fahey said he will make known the earliest possible date when the facility can open and said it is still likely to open this year.
