Material delays push back Aquaplex reopening

Reopening of the Drumheller Aquaplex has been further delayed, now with an estimated reopening date in late November to early December, due to delays procuring necessary materials for repairs.
The indoor pool at the Aquaplex has been closed to the public since July of this year when a leak after a potential leak was discovered by facility staff, which resulted in the discovery of a medium-sized void.
“Our teams had to purchase a new hairnet strainer for the project, but there were some delays on the arrival of this part,” reads a statement from the Town of Drumheller.
This has resulted in delays to repair the Aquaplex, pushing back the anticipated completion date.
While repairs have been ongoing, other work has also been underway, including relocation of the northwest door due to flood mitigation work, and replacement of the facility’s make-up air handling unit. The make-up air handling unit also faced material delays to procure fans and grates in early October.
