Update: Pool Shutdown
May 26, 2022
The annual pool shutdown at the Dr. Duncan Murray Recreation Centre is halfway complete, and cleaning and maintenance work is on schedule.
The pool closed on May 2, 2022, for annual upkeep work to keep the facility healthy and functional, and to help minimize maintenance-related service impacts throughout the year. It is scheduled to reopen on June 27, 2022.
Major mechanical work progressing for the 2022 pool shutdown includes:
- Make Up Air Unit (MAU) work (this unit provides the pool deck with tempered fresh air)
- Mechanical Room work, including the servicing of boilers and heat exchangers, and some electrical, piping and insulation work (these systems serve a portion of the Recreation Centre beyond the pool)
- Sand Vessel replacement (filters that use sand to filter the impurities out of the water)
- Main pool expansion seam and cap inspections and potential replacement of the seam
Boilers have been replaced and contractors are working on connecting them to services. Once this has been completed, further work will progress.
