Drumheller Aquaplex Update

Posted on Sep. 11 2020
 

Earlier today, the Drumheller Aquaplex was closed immediately due to Electrical Safety Code violations being brought to Administration's attention. These safety concerns were quickly addressed by Town Administration, a local electrician and an Electrical Safety Code Inspector.

"Upon discussion with the electrician and the Electrical Safety Codes Inspector the issue is significant enough to pose a safety risk," explains the Director of Infrastructure Services, Dave Brett. "We closed the pool immediately so we could fully investigate and determine the extent of the issue."

After carrying out an inspection with the electrical contractor and Electrical Inspector, the extent of the repairs have been identified. "The full repair requires parts that are backordered and therefore unavailable for approximately 4 weeks. However, the crew worked quickly to put together a temporary repair to make the system safe and allow the Aquaplex to re-open as soon as possible," Brett continues. "This temporary fix has been approved by the Electrical Safety Codes inspector."

Once the correct parts arrive, Town Administration will schedule a closure to bring the system fully up to code.
