WEST SALEM, Wis. (WKBT) - After undergoing a $1 million restoration project, a 40-year old pool reopened to the public.
Swarthout Pool in West Salem held a ribbon cutting ceremony Friday afternoon. Voters approved the project in a referendum in April of 2016.
Rebecca Auna, president of the West Salem Aquatics Center Committee, said the project helps bring the community together.
"I'm thrilled because it means two things. Our community will continue to have a pool in our community. That was the main goal when we started. And I am also thrilled because I can close this account," Auna said.
After the ribbon cutting, tours were available for those wishing to see the newly remodeled pool and pool house.
