FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The City of Fort St. John released an update on what crews have been working on at the North Peace Leisure Pool over the last two weeks.

The eight-week closure of the pool for annual maintenance started on September 11th.

During the first week of the closure, September 12th to 16th, crews drained the pools, painted the sauna and support pillars, installed scaffolding in the lap pool, and replaced the rooftop HVAC equipment. They also began the ground penetrating radar in the leisure pool.
