News that the Sylvan Lake Aquatic Centre would re-open last week was short-lived after the facility was closed again on June 2 due to public safety concerns.

The Town of Sylvan Lake issued a statement on June 2 noting that the facility would be closed immediately after a third-party contractor expressed “roof structural integrity concerns.” Those concerns, the Town said, were “independent of those previously addressed by temporary shoring installed at the facility” at a cost of $140,000.

The facility was initially closed on May 1 after corrosion was found on parts of its structural steel.
