Corrimal pool maintenance set-back: facility closed until mid-June

Wet weather has delayed repairs to Corrimal pool, which will now open mid-June

CORRIMAL swimming pool is expected to remain closed for maintenance until mid-June after wet weather conditions delayed the repairs.

The two pools at the facility – 50m heated pool and 25m pool – are undergoing routine maintenance which includes the replacement of expansion jointing, fixing damaged tiles and repairs to the main water supply line.

This is part of Wollongong City Council’s pools’ routine maintenance over the less-busy winter months.

A Council spokesperson said the work helps to extend their life, reduce unplanned works, and improve safety as we get ready for the next busy summer season.

The pool closed on Saturday May 1 and was expected to reopen by May 30. However, the ongoing works were unable to continue last week due to the rainfall and unfavourable weather conditions making it difficult to undertake maintenance safely and effectively.

The works have now resumed and are expected to be completed by June 14, with weather permitting.

In the meantime, Council encourages winter swimmers to visit Dapto Heated Pool or local saltwater pools.
