UPDATE: The pool shut down early for the season on Friday, August 25th.
HUDSON’S HOPE, B.C. — The Hudson’s Hope Pool closed down a couple of days earlier due to “unforeseen mechanical issues”.
The initial plan was to close the pool on August 29th, the day after hosting the Last Chance Swim event.
The district put out a notice of the issues with the pool at around 7 p.m. on Friday.
Last summer, the pool was closed three times due to repairs and issues with the district’s water treatment plant. It was closed indefinitely on August 2nd, 2022, shortly after reopening.
Earlier this year, the district received $187,500 from the Northern Development Initiative Trust (NDIT) to repair the outdoor pool.
According to the NDIT, the project included the replacement of the pool liner, floor membrane, floor inlets and gutters to restore the outdoor pool.
