Fort St. John residents will have to wait another month to use the North Peace Leisure Pool.

The pool closure has been extended until July 10 because of delays in construction. The renovations began in April and were originally only scheduled to last six weeks.

The Director of the North Peace Pool Commission says the four-week extension will result in lost revenue. However, Karen Goodings says the extra time is not expected to affect the overall $750,000 renovation budget.

The City’s Director of Facilities and Protective Services says some of the setbacks can be attributed to spending time removing moisture from the columns beside the pool. Jim Rogers says the 19 columns required a special drying technique so as to avoid structural problems in the future.

Renovations and upgrades are being done to the change rooms, sauna, steam room, diving boards, and pool, including a new system to sterilize the pool water so less chlorine will be necessary.
