THE Poowong Pool will be closed for the last
two weeks of the season following an investiga-
tion into the causes of a significant amount of
water loss from the pool.
While the pool had been losing some water
for the whole season, the volume of water be -
ing lost escalated significantly last week.
South Gippsland Shire Council staff and
contractors have been working overnight at
the pool last week to rectify the problem but
it has become clear that they will need to un-
dertake more extensive investigation work to
isolate and then rectify the issue.
The council’s Community Strengthening co -
ordinator Ned Dennis said it was disappoint-
ing that the pool needed to be closed just
before the end of the season but it was nec-
essary to ensure the pool is protected from
“The greatest risk at this stage is that the wa-
ter being lost compromises the integrity of the
shell of the swimming pool.
“It is unfortunate that the community will not
have access to the Poowong Pool over the next
two weeks but staff and contractors have been
doing everything they can to remedy the issue.
“We could not have kept individuals using
the pool without risking further damage and
experiencing high levels of water loss.
“Council apologises for any inconvenience
this may cause users but the closure will en-
sure we can repair the pool for future use,” Mr
Those who have purchased season passes
for the Poowong Pool may use the passes at
any of the Korumburra, Mirboo North and
Foster outdoor pools.
People will still have access to the other
South Gippsland outdoor pools until the end
of the season on March 13.
