Homecoming for new pool operator
To handle operations at the larger, more complext Bainbridge Island Aquatic Center, the park district has hired Eric Khambatta as pool operator.
Khambatta, who grew up in Suquamish, is no stranger to Bainbridge aquatics, having worked at the Ray Williamson Pool while in high school and college.
Since then, Khambatta has served as pool manager in Kirkville, Mo., and Anacortes before returning to this area with well over a decade of experience in pool operations.
I came back because of my family, and this position had just opened up, he said. Im really happy to be here, and Im excited about the new facility.
Focusing on the mechanical operation of the two pools, Khambatta sees the combination of new and old systems as a challenge.
Im here to troubleshoot, and I enjoy doing that, he said.
Hell focus on issues such as water and air quality, electricity and heating.
I knew the new pool was due, and I hope we draw a new crowd here, more recreational users and families, Khambatta said.
They will enjoy it, thats for sure.
