Aquaplex Modernization Update

During the final stages of the Aquaplex modernization, a leak causing the loss of over one foot of water depth per day was detected. In order to resolve this issue we deployed divers and the leak has now been repaired.

In the course of these repairs we discovered a deficiency in the pool liner ladders and are working on repairing them before we fill the pool up with water again. While unanticipated, these repairs are necessary in order to meet building and health code requirements prior to re-opening of the Aquaplex.

"Our goal is to be up and running as soon as possible. We will continue to work diligently to limit delays, said Acting CAO Barb Miller."

The freshly modernized Aquaplex features new steam room, new hot tub, graduated entry pool that is ideally suited for family and youth swimming. "We are looking forward to opening the Aquaplex to the public so that we can once again enjoy this great facility, added Miller."

Aquaplex Modernization

The Town of Drumheller regretfully announces that there will be a further delay to the opening of the Aquaplex and as a result the pool will not open until further notice.

While preparing the pool for the opening, staff noticed that there was a loss of water from the pool that could not be accounted for. Town staff along with the contractor's staff worked over the weekend and throughout the day - today to locate the issue without success.

"The leak is significant enough that we cannot heat the water while maintaining the water level," stated Darryl Drohomerski, CAO for the Town of Drumheller "this means we cannot keep the pool filled or warm enough for patrons to use."

"Unfortunately until we locate, isolate and repair the link we cannot have a date for the pool opening; added Paul Salvatore, Director of Community Services, "once we have an idea of where the leak is, we will be able to give a more certain timeline for reopening the pool."

The Town of Drumheller will extend Aquaplex memberships by the length of the closure. "We recognise the inconvenience that the closure of the indoor pool causes regular users and we want to apologise for the delay," said Drohomerski, "obviously, everyone involved in this project is extremely disappointed, but we are working as quickly as possible to correct the problem so that we can open as soon as possible."
