Riverdale Country SchoolBronx, NY
Riverdale Country School is an independent day school that provides a continuous coeducational program for boys and girls from pre-kindergarten through grade twelve. The school is located on two wooded campuses in the northwest corner of New York City. In June 2010, Riverdale Country School commissioned Counsilman-Hunsaker to provide a swimming pool audit for their aging, six lane 25-yard pool.
The audit identified items that were substandard among the pool and mechanical equipment, not meeting current Health Department code requirements or industry standards, and equipment that was not operating as designed. The assessment evaluated the existing pool and respective support systems, provided recommendations to enhance the air quality, and offered an opinion of probable cost for items identified.
The report also discussed new technologies and equipment currently available for swimming pools that will assist staff members with the operation of the pool, improve water and air quality, and promote water and energy savings.
