Home Hill Pool to re-open 8 April 2019

Home Hill Pool will re-open on Monday 8 April 2019.

Test samples of the concrete structure have been taken and further maintenance is currently underway.

Refilling of the pool will commence on Friday 5 April so the pool is ready for swimmers at 5.30am on Monday 8 April 2019.

Ayr Pool is open for business during this time for your aquatic needs.

Council thanks you for your understanding while work is undertaken.

Home Hill Pool closing for structural tests from 30 March 2019

Home Hill Pool will be closed on Saturday 30 March 2019 for 7-9 days.

During this time Burdekin Shire Council will undertake testing of the concrete shell to check the health of the concrete structure which is approximately 60 years old. For this testing to occur the pool must first be emptied.  Repairing the shell requires curing time before the pool can be refilled – this provides uncertainty on re-opening at this stage.

As the work progresses  updates will be provided.

Ayr Pool will be open for business during this time for your aquatic needs.

Council thanks you for your understanding while work is undertaken.

Giru residents requested to conserve water

The Giru Water Tower and low level storage tanks are currently at 100% capacity however residents of Giru and surrounding areas are requested to restrict water usage to essential purposes only until further notice.

Whilst the Giru/Cungulla Water Treatment Plant remains operational increased flows and turbidity in the Haughton River following heavy overnight rainfall in the catchment will impact treated water production rates. Normal treated water production rates cannot be achieved until such time as turbidity levels in the Haughton River stabilise following any level of flooding in the catchment.

Moderate flooding levels are forecast for the Haughton River today and with rain forecast to continue into next week, turbidity levels are expected to be higher than normal for an extended period.

Please use potable water for essential purposes only until further advice can be issued by Burdekin Shire Council.

Please remember

It is vital that residents in Giru conserve water.
