pool1South Gippsland Shire Council’s pool maintenance contractors are preparing to undertake repairs or temporary reinstatement works on the Mirboo North outdoor pool during the holiday period.

The pool was drained Monday night to inspect the damaged pipe that caused a three metre by two metre section of concrete to lift from the base of the pool.

Urgent works are progressing to ensure the pool can re-open to the public as soon as possible for the summer season. At this stage the pool is anticipated to remain closed until at least the first week of January.

The community has been advised that their ‘season tickets’ can be used at other YMCA pools, including Splash at Leongatha but they are very disappointed about what has occurred.
