Pool Closure Updates

Pool Closure Update - November 30, 2018

Thank you for your continued patience during the temporary pool closure at the Robert Lee YMCA.

We have received the final report of the pool safety inspection that was conducted by our engineering consultant, and they are recommending replacement of a number of equipment support anchors located above the pool.

The estimated timeline the contractors have provided the YMCA for the work to be completed is two and a half weeks, with the pool estimated to re-open on December 19th. As the work is completed we will gain a clearer picture from the contractors as to whether this target date will be impacted in any way, and if so, we will be sure to let you know.

We realize that the continued closure of the pool is disappointing and an inconvenience, but the safety of all of our members is our top priority. Until the required work is completed and the YMCA has been assured by all parties that our pool is safe for use, it will continue to remain closed.

Once again, we are sorry for this closure. If you wish to put your membership on hold, please call our membership services desk at 604.689.9622 or email rlyadmin@gv.ymca.ca.

If you have previously placed your membership on a hold due to the pool closure, our membership services team will automatically extend the hold for the duration of the closure.

If you wish to visit another YMCA pool during this temporary closure, please do so:

Thank you again for your patience! 


 

On Tuesday November 13th, 2018 an equipment anchor on the ceiling of the Robert Lee YMCA pool area gave way, causing one three-foot pipe to fall into the pool. No one was injured.

The Robert Lee YMCA pool remains temporarily closed until we have completed a full safety inspection. All swim lessons and aquatics programs are cancelled until further notice.

We are working with an engineer consultant to complete a thorough safety inspection of the pool area. This inspection has taken longer than first anticipated.  Once we have received the inspection results, we will inform you here as soon as possible with any updates. We appreicate your continued patience. 

Your safety is the YMCA’s top priority. We will open the pool as soon as possible.
