“There needed to be a plan outlined (when the pool was constructed) where all of the underground service lines were in place but there is no such thing,” Chair of the Pool Commission, Arthur Hadland said. “So we’re faced with trying to locate lines for which there is no plan.”
Hadland says all affected swimming lessons and user groups will be contacted and notified regarding the rescheduling of missed hours.
“I would encourage the users of that facility to keep in touch with staff, and see where it’s progressing,” Hadland goes on to say. “…They are doing their best under difficult circumstances.”
Hadland is asking that any other questions be directed to the pool reception desk at 250 787 8178.
The pool is anticipated to be re-opened to the public on October 23 at 9:00 a.m.
“There’s nothing written in stone… Life is never certain and this one isn’t certain either, but we certainly are hopeful. That is our absolute goal.”
