It’s Roofin’ Time at the Lamar Pool


South Wall of Lamar Swimming Pool

Now that the swimming season has ended and roofing materials are available, the Lamar Municipal Swimming Pool is getting a new roof. 

Camp & Currell Construction is putting on the new roof and according to Warren Camp, the project should be completed in the next two weeks.  The main roof, and an adjacent pavilion roof was damaged during a spring storm that toppled several tree branches in Willow Creek Park and drove a tree limb into the roof, piercing the ceiling in the men’s locker/shower room.  The replacement project was put on hold until the summer season ended as the hole from the branch did not interfere with daily pool operations.  Camp said that finding replacement roofing also caused a delay.

“It’ll be the same as before when we’re done here.  We’ve patched the hole caused by the branch, and now we’re just waiting on the new roofing to get here,” he explained.  A portion of the metal roof on the pavilion was bent askew by some other branches and will also be replaced.
