The Pella Family Aquatic Center will be undergoing some minor changes since being certified recently by Ellis and Associates.

Pella Community Services Director Jenny Hesseltine says the aquatic center is the first facility in the state to be certified by E&A, an international firm that provides comprehensive aquatic risk management programs to aquatic facilities around the world.

As part of the certification, the center will require swimmers aged 12 and younger to pass a test before using the deep end of the pool.

Also, the center will be audited several times a year by E&A staff to ensure adherence their program.
