The filtration system started to show signs of failure toward the end of the last season. Investigative works were carried out after the pool closed for the season to determine the extent of damage and to provide an assessment and indicative budget to repair. The report indicated a complete replacement was necessary, requiring new design specifications. Council approved the works to be included in the 2023-24 budget. A tender request initiated and awarded by September 2023.
