LISBON, Ohio (WYTV) – Administrators at Sadie Van Fossan Lisbon Pool put in solar piping at the start of the summer of ’14, hoping it would warm the water and boost attendance.
So far, it looks like the investment has paid off.
Workers there said that donations to the pool entirely paid for the solar investment.
The city of Lisbon gave $20,000 to the pool this year, as compared to $34,000 last year. Pool officials hope donations can help make up the difference in taxpayer funding.
