Council is seeking community feedback on how the pools are used and enjoyed over the Summer months.
In mid-2017 Council engaged an external company to undertake a Pools Feasibility Study.
The study was to give a clear opinion on the cost versus benefit of heating or using other methods to help extend the pool swimming season across all council pools, and to indicate if these options would be relatively financially sustaining in the long term.
Recommendations from the report encouraged Council to invest in heating measures to bring the pool water temperature up to a reliable general recreation temperature of 26oC for the main pool season.
It was also noted that the heating may then allow a ‘shoulder’ extension of the pool season for some pools at a somewhat lower temperature suitable for lap swimming.
Pools Survey - Now Closed
We want to hear from you. What do you think about your pool's:
- Water temperature
- Season opening length
- Program offerings
Take our short survey below and help us to better understand your future pool needs. Your feedback will be presented to Council for consideration as part of its future planning process.
Tumut Aquatic Centre Masterplan
The feasibility report also recommend a new enclosed 25metre pool and program pool be built alongside the existing 50metre Tumut pool, and that the area be developed into a Regional Aquatic Centre. This is a long term 10 year visionary plan and subject to future funding.
