Masterton pool gets $250,000 upgrade

16 November 2018

Masterton’s outdoor pool facility is getting a $250,000 upgrade to prevent water wastage and increase the pool’s life.

The outdoor pool is almost 50 years old and needs work to ensure it is an asset that future generations can enjoy.

The upgrade will include putting in a PVC liner that will stop an ongoing issue of water leaking through the bottom of the pool. Work will also be done to capture water lost through overflow channels at the side of the pool and maintenance will be undertaken on the hydro slide.

Manager of Community Facilities and Activities, Andrea Jackson, said the pool is an important asset that needs investment.

“For an asset that is almost 50 years old the outdoor lido pool has served us well. Unfortunately, it’s showing its age and now is the time to give it a facelift,” Ms Jackson said.

“The majority of the work will begin in January 2018. To ensure we get the best result, the outdoor pool and adjoining toddlers pool will be closed over the 2018-19 summer.

“We understand many of our residents look forward to spending summer days in our outdoor pool. With that in mind, we’re currently working on some exciting alternatives to ensure people can keep cool over the summer – watch this space!”

Residents are reminded that the outdoor dive pool and indoor pool, including the lazy river, will remain open throughout summer.

Among other things, the WorkSafe criminal proceedings into the Whakaari /White Island disaster look like the outcome of a conscious political strategy. The government is choosing this route instead holding a proper inquiry, because it can conveniently narrow the focus only to (a) the events prior to the eruption and (b) solely to possible violations of our labour laws...
