Wellington Council approves engineering service of Water’s Edge to lead in pool repair project

By Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow— The Wellington City Council has approved Water’s Edge Aquatic Design in Wichita to start engineering services for the major repairs at the Aquatic Center at its Tuesday meeting.

The estimated project cost has yet to be determined, but Wellington Public Works Director Jeremy Jones said it could cost city taxpayers in excess of $1.2 million. At Tuesday’s meeting, the council approved the engineering contract with Water’s Edge at $57,500.

The process will be in four phases starting this month, including determining the project’s scope, finalizing the plans, helping with bidding, and administrating the construction process.

Construction is estimated to start in September and end in May 2o25.

Council member Rick Roitman asked how much the pool has been leaking these past few weeks. Jones said it is leaking, but not at the rate it was last season when they had to delay the pool’s opening.
