Our own Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board will open “the first public swimming pool in the United States with a natural filtration system; natural filtration pools have been built in several locations throughout Europe. Featuring BioNova’s patented biological filtration system, the pool is designed to use plants in a nearby regeneration pond instead of chemicals to treat the water,” according to a Park Board announcement about an August 14 groundbreaking.
The pool is part of improvements being made to Webber Park. BioNova Natural Pools and Landform, in conjunction with the Park Board, will be providing the design and consulting work for the Webber pool project, scheduled for completion summer 2014.
