Emery County had struggled for many years maintaining an aging and antiquated indoor-pool facility. Both the pool and the building housing it had become serious liabilities for those who maintained and operated the facility. The final plans by the project team led to funding by the Community Impact Board.

Emery County Aquatic Center

The finished project consists of a six-lane, 25-yd indoor lap pool, and an outdoor family leisure pool with zero-depth entry, a big toy feature, a current channel and a large slide. Locker and toilet facilities accommodate both indoor and outdoor patrons. A state-of-the-art Myrtha pool structure was used for both pool facilities and the outdoor family pool has a cushioned pool floor.
