A consultant has been hired to determine long-term structural and mechanical needs at Bunker Beach.
The Anoka County Parks Department recently awarded a professional services contract to a firm in St. Louis, Missouri for just under $50,000.
The study will focus on the wave pool which is now 30 years old and at the end of its life span. Some short-term repairs were made this year to get the wave pool through a few more seasons. The study will also look at future infrastructure issues in the rest of the water park.
The consultant will issue a final report by July 1.
