Pool construction on track
The new pool construction is well underway with the pool walls now in place. Progress to date is on track for the pool to open in March, 2018.
The pool facility includes a ramped 25m, eight-lane pool, 20m x 10m learn-to-swim pool and toddlers area, spa pool, change rooms and ancillary facilities.
The ground pipework, block walls to the sand filters and floor slabs have now been installed.
Fundraising for the new pool has reached $1.96 million, with donations from Central Lakes Trust $1 million, Otago Community Trust $500,000, Olive West Trust $50,000, Project Funding Lotteries $400,000 and Rotary $10,000.
The total project cost is $12.28 million.
Holmes Consulting has been contracted to re-examine the current Wanaka pool regarding strengthening works to ensure the pool can be kept open until March, 2018.
Early indications are that this is highly achievable.
