At Public Meeting, Consultant to Unveil Site Analysis of Lake Thoreau Pool

Reston Association has hired design consultant Kimley-Horn to lead the design and engineering process for Lake Thoreau’s pool.

The company will share findings of its site analysis at a public meeting on Feb. 11 at RA headquarters. The meeting — which kickstarts discussions about the future of the pool — will begin at 6:30 p.m.

The future of the degraded facility, which opened in 1981, has been in question for the last several months.

A previous consultant hired by RA found major structural problems with the pool, including possible safety issues like a deteriorating retaining wall and cracks in the pool shell and concrete deck.

The pool will remain closed until a renovation plan is implemented.
