On Tuesday the Y began filling its new 10-lane, 25-yard lap pool at Mahackeno.
After a final coat of plaster was applied to the pool shell, Ellen Johnston — the Y’s Water Rat head coach and swim program director — took a ceremonial turn with the hose.
Just 24 hours later, here’s what it looked like:
Now the water will be conditioned for at least 10 days. Then it will be inspected, and certified for public use.
The Y will open the new facility when every area is ready. They’re shooting for early September.
Meanwhile, everyone into the pool — the soon-to-be-old one, downtown.
