The Aquaplex con­tin­ues to be closed to the pub­lic as the town searches for a com­pany to re­pair a leak in the deep end.

The town said Tues­day a con­trac­tor has been hired to make the re­pairs in­volv­ing a dam­aged drain. These re­pairs will be cov­ered un­der war­ranty.

One of the drain struc­tures at the deep end of the pool has a wide split on the side, which wa­ter was leak­ing through. It was found the crack has been caused by the drain slump­ing due to a loss of sup­port un­der­neath. The con­trac­tor will be mud jack­ing un­der the drain and then mak- ing re­pairs to the drain struc­ture.

“Co­or­di­na­tion of sub-con­trac­tors by the con­trac­tor will see the work start­ing on Fri­day and be­ing com­pleted by Novem­ber 26.” said Dar­ryl Dro­homer­ski CAO of the Town of Drumheller. “After the re­pairs are com­pleted, it will take around 10 days to fill and heat the pool and have the wa­ter tested by Al­berta Health Ser­vices.”

Aquaplex mem­ber­ships will be ex­tended for the length of the clo­sure.
