By 21 June 2013 5

The Economic Development Directorate is letting us know that Civic Pool is shutting down for a month for maintenance:

Sport and Recreation Services (SRS) in the Economic Development Directorate advise that the Canberra Olympic Pool will be closed from 5 July to 4 August 2013 while necessary maintenance is undertaken in accordance with the facility’s Condition Assessment and Maintenance Schedule. Key aspects of this work will include repainting both the 50 metre and toddlers’ pools.

SRS Director said ‘the work is an important element of ongoing maintenance, designed to lengthen the life of the facility for the immediate future, while options for its longer term future are being resolved. Repainting assists in preserving the integrity of the pool structure that would otherwise be exposed to damage from pool chemicals.’

Riveting news in the middle of winter. It probably took more people to draft/approve the media statement than there are patrons pooling at this time of year…

Um, the main pool is indoors, so it actually gets a lot of use all year round…

This is good planning on their part, doing this work when demand for the pool is at its lowest. It is nice to see some common sense in administration for a change.
