CRIB Point residents and holidays makers hoping to cool off at the Crib Point swimming pool this summer will have to seek alternatives, with the 25 metre outdoor pool remaining closed.
The pool was closed in November due to leaks in the pool shell and underground pipework that have prevented water levels and water quality from being maintained.
It is thought the pipes may have been damaged by an earthquake last year.
In late December, a specialist leak detection company used sonic testing to detect the location and extent of the leaks. However, Mornington Peninsula Shire is waiting on reports to understand the extent of the damage.
Other centres still open are Pelican Park Aquatic Centre, Hastings and Yawa Aquatic Centre, Rosebud.
The Crib Point centre includes a heated outdoor pool and shaded toddlers’ pool as well as grassed areas with picnic tables, change rooms and kiosk.
