The lap pool, the hot tub, the sauna, the steam room and the fitness room are not affected by this leak and will remain open for public use.
The city has hired a leak detection specialist to aid pool facility staff in identifying and completing the necessary repairs.
Unfortunately the specialist will not be able to arrive in Fort St. John until October 22.
“Pool facility staff will continue to investigate the leak and are contacting other industry specialists who might be able to help us sooner,” the city said in a written statement.
Due to the leisure pool closure there will be impacts to regularly scheduled programming and lessons.
“An interim facility schedule is being developed and we will be contacting affected customers registered in lessons and programs as soon as possible,” the city goes on to say.
Enegeticcity.ca will keep you updated as new information becomes available.
