Power surge closes LCLC pool

by Gayle Wilson

A power surge amid the storm on December 22 that may have damaged the de-humidification system on the roof at the Lunenburg County Lifestyle Centre's (LCLC's) BMO Financial Group Aquatic Centre. prompted the administration to close the pool.

The administration posted on the LCLC website that day, "Due to a serious power bump, a major piece of equipment has been damaged making it impossible to open our Aquatic Centre to the public. We will therefore be closed until at least some time after Christmas."

The system affects the air quality at the aquatic centre.

However, by December 24 things were looking a bit more optimistic.

"We're reassessing and hopeful that we may be operational later on this week," reported Trudy Payne, the director of recreation services for the Municipality of the District of Lunenburg, which is in charge of the centre.

"We have a company up there this morning and it looks like it may be something different," Payne told LighthouseNOW.

However, she emphasized that the exact problem had yet to be determined.

"They're working on it now and we're hopeful. That's all I can say," added Payne.
