The Drumheller Aquaplex has been a hot topic in the valley with the repetitive closure of the faculty.

It has been a couple of weeks now since the pool has been drained, and the Town of Drumheller has narrowed down the problem to a cracked drain pipe.

Now that the problem has been identified, workers can proceed to fix it.

"We have somebody that is a subcontractor, they are going to be working with our contractors to pour a concrete slurry underneath the drain that has been damaged," explained Town of Drumheller Communications Officer, Julia Fielding.

This concrete slurry will harden and glue together the crack, and keep everything in place.

"The drain was sinking, and that was causing the cracking, so we need to get that supported," she continued.

The cost of the concrete slurry will be covered by warranty, and Fielding says the one day job will start on November 29th. She also goes on to say that it will be about ten days to get the pool filled back up, and have the water tested after the crack is fixed.

"We appreciate people's patience, we understand it has taken a while to get this fixed, and there were a number of issues that we needed to get sorted out," she urged. "Thank you for patience and we will get it open as soon as we can."
