BELLEVUE, Neb. (AP) - Substandard diving boards are being removed from an Omaha suburb’s municipal pools.

The dive envelopes - the size and depth of the diving areas - at the Bellevue pools don’t meet state Department of Health and Human Services standards. Public works director Jeff Roberts told the Omaha World-Herald (http://bit.ly/1XfRug4 ) the problem surfaced during surveying of the swimming pools for future modifications.

Roberts says the pools are 8 to 12 inches shallower than they should be and the shape of Bellevue’s pools also is an issue.

Bellevue’s five pools were built in the 1960s and 1970s. The city has been looking at ways to improve its pools since a 2013 report found that the pools were leaking and didn’t comply with federal disability laws.
