WATERTOWN — Repairs to the Steve D. Alteri Municipal Swimming Pool at the Alex T. Duffy Fairgrounds will be completed in time for next summer’s city pool program, City Manager Kenneth A. Mix said.

On Monday night, Mr. Mix assured council members that the Alteri pool will be open next summer.

The city will be ordering some parts and going out to bid on some equipment this week that’s needed to make the repairs.

They include a chemcontrol, new lifeguard chairs and taking a filter and some other equipment that will removed from the William J. Flynn Municipal Swimming Pool and repurpose it for the Alteri pool, city officials said Monday night.

While the Alteri pool will be fixed, the fate of the Flynn pool looks very much in doubt. It needs at least $735,000 in repairs, according to City Engineer Michael Delaney.

At this point, it appears the next City Council will decide its fate, although council members Sarah V. Compo-Pierce and Ryan Henry-Wilkinson were offering suggestions on Monday night for other parks and recreation projects that could replace the pool on the city’s north side.
