Hervey Bay Aquatic Centre pool ready for holidays

THE 50 metre pool and wading pool at the Hervey Bay Aquatic Centre is expected to be open for the September school holidays.

Work to replace two aging valves is almost complete and repairs to the concrete pool surrounds will be done next week.

Councillor Darren Everard said the upgrades were overdue.

"The valves which regulate the supply of water into the 50 metre pool and wading pool were installed when the pool was built in 1988 and need replacing."
