Work Commences On Goomeri Pool

This week, Gympie Regional Council will continue work on the Goomeri pool to rectify the ongoing issues before summer.

Electrical specialists are currently carrying out work on the facility’s electrical systems while work to remove the old pool surface lining in preparation for resurfacing of the main pool floor and wall and the toddlers pool floor will commence next week, weather permitting.

“I am aware there are many in the Goomeri community who want to see this facility operational as soon as possible,” said Cr Hilary Smerdon.

“I can say we are working at rectifying the issues which led to the facilities closure.

“These are not straightforward fixes, particularly in relation to the electrical elements, but we are hopeful of re-opening the pool before the summer swimming season,” Cr Smerdon said.

Once these repairs are carried out, Council will refill the pool to test the filtration system.
