Preliminary Work to Begin on Westsyde Pool and Community Centre Structural Repair Project

Kamloops, BC - The first step towards the re-opening of the Westsyde Pool will take place April 25th and 26th as crews conduct geotechnical testing adjacent to the existing building foundation. This work is required to access ground conditions in order to complete the project design.

Project construction will begin this summer, with anticipated completion and the re-opening of the pool in early 2017. Project construction updates will be made available online at www.kamloops.ca once construction is underway.

The fitness centre located in the Westsyde Pool and Community Centre will remain open to the public until the start of project construction.
