Due to mechanical issues, the opening date for the Salmo Pool has been delayed by just over 10 days. Originally scheduled to open June 5, the new tentative opening date is Sunday, June 16.

Last year, the Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) facility had extensive work done to upgrade the mechanical room, including the addition of two new high efficiency boilers, new plumbing, and a new chemical feeding system. During this spring`s start up for the Salmo Pool, some deficiencies were identified and it was determined a small redesign of piping would be required to operate the mechanical system. This work is expected to be completed by the week of June 10. This will then provide staff with approximately a week to have the facility operational, including filling, filtering, and balancing the pool.

We appreciate the community`s patience and understanding through this minor setback. The safety of our staff and users remains the top priority. The RDCK’s project management team will continue to work with the contractor to get the work done correctly by the revised opening date.

Incorporated in 1965, the Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) is a local government that serves 60,000 residents in 11 electoral areas and nine member municipalities. The RDCK provides more than 160 services, including community facilities, fire protection and emergency services, grants, planning and land use, regional parks, resource recovery and handling, transit, water services and much more.
