Update on Katherine YMCA Pool 17 October 2017 – temporary closure.
A plan has now been endorsed to address the PFAS levels at the Katherine YMCA Pool.
Working in partnership, the Department of Defence, Power & Water and Katherine Town Council have identified a suitable method of partially draining the pool, appropriately treating the water, refilling the pool as well as an ongoing testing regime. The original timeframe to achieve this task has been extended to allow for an even more thorough process but we are hoping to re-open by Summer.
As many would be aware, RAAF Base Tindal has opened their pool to the public until further notice. The pool is available for the whole community including the regular YMCA programmed activities, school swimming lessons and organised carnivals. Entry to the Tindal Pool is free, there is a café, change rooms and grassed areas to relax and enjoy the swim.
The Henry Scott Recreation Centre is open as usual and we look forward to seeing you there.
We will keep everyone updated regarding the re-opending and thank you for your patience.
