Splash Montana Gets $10.5K Surveillance Upgrade

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

Missoula City Council members passed a motion to upgrade the camera surveillance system at the city-owned water park -- Splash Montana.

The new SmartTech system costs about $11,000, and will upgrade the software for Splash Montana's seven existing cameras, and add three more to the perimeter of the building.

City officials said the current cameras are seven years old, and are used to monitor employees in the entrance booths, where money is handled.

They said the new cameras on the outside of the building will help catch suspects painting graffiti and breaking into the water park.

Eric Seagrave, the City Aquatics Supervisor, said, "You know, in this day in age, you really want to know what's going on at your facility, even after hours, and this definitely increases our opportunity to do that."

City officials said the surveillance system does not replace the job of lifeguards, who's duty is to keep patrons safe in the water.
