HELENSBURGH Pool will be closed for two weeks from October 29 to undertake urgent repairs.
Recent investigations at the pool have identified the water supply line has failed.
This means the water in the pool is not circulating as it should be and has required manual treatment by pool staff to make the water clean and safe for swimming.
Wollongong City Council will close the pool from Sunday October 29 for about two weeks while the line is repaired.
Council’s Acting Director of Community Services Kylee Cowgill said a specialist inspected the line this week and identified a problem that required urgent repair.
“While we regret this has occurred at the start of the swim season, these works should mean the pool is fully operational again well before summer begins,” she said.
“Our staff are contacting stakeholders who use the pool on a regular basis for swim coaching and other activities and we will be doing everything we can to assist them.
“The community is encouraged to use the supervised pool at Thirroul or one of our many rock pools or beaches during the closure.”
