 Milton Pool unlikely to open during 2015

 Extensive cracking was found in the base of the main pool at Milton's swimming pool complex during the off season.

Council engaged engineers to investigate the cracking in August once the cracking was discovered, while the pool was in its usual seasonal shut-down.

The engineering company has advised Council that a temporary repair could cost anywhere between $15,000-$40,000 and would not  necessarily be effective enough to allow the pool to open this season.

Service Delivery Group Manager Jules Witt said a temporary repair may cause further delays in finding a permanent solution if it is not successful.

As such, the engineers have been tasked with investigating options for a permanent repair as soon as possible.

All this means it is unlikely the pool will be open in 2015, Mr Witt said.

"We can't give a timeframe for when it will open until we get a clearer idea of the repair options and costs".

It had been due to open during November.

The 33.7m x 13m pool is around 40 years and is located within Taylor Park. A significant fracture has appeared running the length of the pool, with other secondary cracks radiating from it.

At this stage, the engineers cannot offer a definitive answer for the cracking, but it could potentially be a combination of numerous factors such as a rise in the water table, a depression in the ground, effects from flooding or a loss of structural integrity due to long-term degradation.

Council is aware this will be disappointing for the Milton community and apologises for the inconvenience.

We have been in contact with the Milton Swimming Club and  expect to be able to accommodate some swimmers, especially those who swim competitively, at the Balclutha Pool.

Council will keep the Milton community updated with progress and anybody with concerns about bookings should contact District Pool Supervisor Holly Ramsay in the first instance.
