Orange Aquatic Centre plagued by issues

The Orange Aquatic Centre in central western NSW has had a rough trot lately. While a leaking chlorine tank forced closure of the centre for two days in late October, required works were recently delayed as the council struggled to find a local painter to carry out the job.

Sand filter replacement closed the toddler pool for much of September and it was also emptied a month ago to fix peeling paint. Once Orange City Council finally managed to engage a contractor, it determined that the fumes associated with the work would make it necessary to close the centre’s indoor facilities completely. The toddler pool was expected to remain out of action for two weeks while the new surface cured and the pool was refilled.

Hopefully, the remainder of the season will be a little less eventful.
