I want to get rid of my pool. What are my options?
There are two ways you can remove a pool on your property. The first method is to dig out the pool entirely and fill the remaining hole with engineered back fill. This method allows for habitable structures to be constructed over that area. The second method is to cave-in the pool. This way does not allow for the construction of habitable structures over the area where the pool used to be. Both methods do require a building permit.
