Narooma Pool to close for maintenance

Narooma swimming pool will be closed for two months while Eurobodalla Shire Council undertakes important work to extend the life of the indoor pool.

Hydrostatic valves will be installed into the base of the pool as a preventive measure to protect it from cracking. The pool is located in a tidal area and can shift slightly with big tidal movements.

The pool lining will be upgraded with an epoxy finish rather than paint, which will provide a longer life. The pool concourse will also be improved to prevent slips.

While the pool is closed, improvements will be made to the change rooms, including installing cubicles in the communal showers, and behind the scenes to the plant room and below the pool deck.

New diving blocks and new site fencing are also on the list.

The pool will close at midday on Saturday 4 March and re-open on Monday 8 May at 6am.

March and April were chosen to close the pool because the outdoor pools at Moruya and Batemans Bay will still be open to meet the needs of the swimming community. Council’s General Manager Catherine Dale said regular pool users might have noticed signs at the pool over the past few weeks informing them of the closure.“It is unfortunate the pool will be closed for this length of time, particularly during the April school holidays,” she said. “March and April were chosen for this necessary work because the outdoor pools at Moruya and Batemans Bay will still be open. This means regular swimmers, including young people who train for competition year-round, can still swim at other pools in the shire. “This work will ultimately improve this important facility to ensure it meets the needs of the community for years to come and we thank residents and visitors for their patience.
