The city shut the Flaherty Pool yesterday after it began leaking large amounts of water - barely 10 months after a multi-million-dollar renovation:
An underground pipe leak has caused the pool to lose large amounts of water over the past 24 hours. At this time we already have Contractors on site to begin digging up the areas where the pipe has broken. Staff are working to drain the pool to help allow the repair process to begin.
This underground pipe break is unrelated to the poolâ€™s Capital Project completed last year, but is due to unforeseen conditions that have since arisen. We are working quickly to minimize any inconvenience this pool closure will cause, and will work diligently to repair these problems, refill & reheat this pool & get it re-open to the public as soon as possible.
