The benefits of submersion in water

A study showed, after simply sitting chest deep in warm water of 102F for 25 minutes, a decrease in the body’s stress level and cardiac irritability occurred and mental focus, memory and improved frame of mind resulted “Submersion to the neck increases cardiac output by more than 30% in a sedentary individual.

What I Heard

This area is the central hub for a much larger region

Vacation ‘hot spot” with discretionary spending, but local population has a lower income

Cost of living is high

Goal is to build a self-sustaining aquatic facility

Have large swim lesson program, therapy participation, and swim team

Limited by size and temp

People drive over 60 minutes regularly

Community supports having a new aquatic facility, but no likely partners at this time.
