Spring Break means spring pool cleaning at KCC

Spring Break at Kellogg Community College also means spring cleaning for the signature pools that mark front entrance to the main campus in Battle Creek. John DiPierro, director of institutional facilities and public safety at the college, said the pools are drained every spring for normal cleaning and that the process will take the entire week.

Check out the photos above to see why a good cleaning is necessary each spring. I asked the worker scraping the bottom of the pools this morning if he’d found anything interesting in the mix and he said other than some pennies he’d found mostly just rocks.
