Kununurra pool closed until further notice

Published on Friday, 12 March 2021 at 11:26:31 AM

The Shire of Wyndham East Kimberley wishes to advise on an update of the pool. Expert contractors have assessed the pool liner damage and have advised that a split in the liner has allowed water to gather between the concrete pool shell and the liner material. This has caused a lift along the edges, much like a pillow, making the pool unsafe for swimming. As a result, the Shire has closed the pool and begun de-watering it in preparation for the repairs.

The contractors have expertise in vinyl welding and propose to repair the liner and reinstate it over the next week once the pool is empty. The Shire is hopeful the pool will open again for swimming in approximately 3 weeks. However, the extent of the damage under the liner will not be known until the pool is fully de-watered. The weather may also delay progress. The Shire is working as quickly as possible to ensure the facility is available to swimmers. We will endeavour to advise once it is available for use again.

All aquatic and gold memberships will remain on hold until the pool is operational. If you have any further inquiries regarding your membership, please call the Kununurra Leisure Centre on 08 9168 2120.

The Shire wishes to apologise for the inconvenience caused and appreciate your patience.
