Please see this Public Service Announcement from HRM regarding the current status of Centennial Pool:

Work by municipal staff is continuing at Centennial Pool to determine the source of a leak that has closed the pool until further notice.    

The facility closed in March 2020 due to COVID-19.  

The facility remained closed through to Fall 2020 to facilitate the replacement of a filtration system, in addition to regularly scheduled maintenance work. Due to the impacts of COVID-19 on labour and materials, some of this work was delayed.  

The scheduled work was completed in December 2020, however, equipment issues and a leak were detected while testing the new filtration system, causing further delays to the reopening of the pool. 

Since the leak was discovered, municipal staff have completed a wide range of tests, including repairing piping, ground-penetrating radar testing and concrete repairs. It was recently determined that the work to apply a coating product to seal the inside of the main drain piping was not possible. Work is now underway to replace sections of the existing drain piping which involves removing a section of the concrete on the pool bottom to expose the pipes that need to be replaced. Once new piping is installed, concrete will be poured and once that is cured, new tiling and water proofing will be installed. This work is planned to be completed before the end of August at which time the pool will be filled, and water levels monitored. If the water levels hold confirming that the leak has been fixed, the next phase of work will involve cleaning the pool, balancing the chemicals and testing of the new filtration system. At that time, a more definite timeline will be provided regarding a reopening date of the facility.
