Balclutha Centennial Pool
Clutha District Council is
expecting to re-open the Balclutha Centennial Pool on 5 September, following
its shutdown for annual maintenance.
It closed on 24 July 2016 for
routine maintenance and extra work on pool surfaces, which took longer than
This is the first time the pool
has been emptied following its upgrade five years ago and work including making
bulkhead alterations, sealing, grouting and tile replacement as well as
maintenance on the heating system and filtration plant.
We will begin to fill the pool
over the next few days and then the water has to be brought up to temperature,
if this happens before 5 September, Council will look to open the pool earlier.
This work allows the pool to
operate with fewer disruptions during the year and keeps it looking attractive
and clean for our customers, so thank you for your patience during this period.
Please keep an eye on Council’s website and the Balclutha
Centennial Pool Facebook page for any updates.
