Hay River pool closed since Tuesday evening

The Hay River pool will be closed until further notice, says Stephane Millette, the town’s recreation director.

The pool has been closed since Tuesday evening.

“We’re having mechanical issues with the main pool pump which means that we’re not circulating water and the water can’t go to the filtration system,” he explained.


“So we have a local contractor working on that pool pump, but we’re having trouble finding parts.”

Millette explained the contractor is attempting a “temporary fix” right now, which they hope will hold until the replacement part arrives.

In the meantime, swimming lessons – which were scheduled to start next week – and public swims remain cancelled.

The Town says it will post on Facebook when things are back up and running.
