Prince Rupert residents will have to wait one more day to get their feet wet, as the Earl Mah Aquatic Centre postponed their opening by one more day.
This afternoon the recreation centre posted on their social media accounts that the pool would be open however, due to a unforeseen circumstance the opening has been delayed.
“Due to unforeseen circumstances the pool will no longer be opening today as planned. We truly apologize for the inconvenience and thank you all for your understanding,” wrote Prince Rupert Recreation on their Facebook page.
David Geronazzo, director of recreation and community services for the city, said he could not specify what the circumstance was however, he confirmed that it was not related to the construction plans.
The pool was supposed to re-open Thursday, Aug. 8 at noon but will now open a day later.
The pool closed mid-July for its annual maintenance repairs which finished sooner than expected.
On Aug. 9 the pool will be open from 6:30 a.m.- 8:30 p.m and from 1-8 p.m. on Aug. 10. Regular hours will resume on Aug. 11 with AquaFit beginning on Aug. 12.
