BAKER CITY: Sam-O-Swim Center expected to re-open

Preliminary work was done recently on the repair to the heat exchanger unit in the mechanical room at the Sam-O-Swim Center. According to Baker City Manager Fred Warner, dismantling the old and corroded pipe proved to be quite a challenge.
The hot water from Sam-O-Swim is used to heat the city water which fills the pool. Using the natural geothermal water saves Sam-o the cost of heating the water by other means.
The Baker County YMCA is reporting that the pool is expected to re-open Monday, March 9th.
