Public Pool gets blasted in Oberursel

In case you get to hear some 50 kg of explosives going off this morning in Oberursel, rest assured. This explosion is only to detonate the old public swimming pool, which has already been stripped down to its skeleton framework.

The detonation has been set for 11 a.m. today – on 4 June 2013. As nobody can be within 150 m reach, there will be no private filming. But the detonation crew will record it and make it available to the city as well as the local press.

The new swimming pool will cost the city about 14 million euro. Maintaining the pool will add another 600.000 euro – 1.000.000 euro to its yearly budget plan.

There has been much discussion whether the city can afford all this.
