Locals and visitors to Aramac will have a new aquatic centre to cool down in during the hot summer months—a critical piece of infrastructure for the community with temperatures soaring to over 35 degrees Celsius for five months of the year.
The aquatic centre replaces the existing 65-year-old pool with a new 25m six-lane swimming pool as well as constructing a children's splash pad and water treatment plant and building. Works will also include landscaping and fencing.
The new centre means:
- lower operating and maintenance costs
- less water usage (the current pool is cracked and leaks 38,000L a day)
- appropriate levels of chemicals to treat the water can be maintained, reducing health and environmental risks
- the centre will meet current state government guidelines for public pools.
