It's taken about half-a-year longer than expected, but the eight-million-dollar revitalization project at the Terrace and District Aquatic Centre is finally complete -- and the pool complex is scheduled reopen this week.

The City announced on Facebook over the weekend that it and the Kitimat-Stikine Regional District are preparing to open for business this Thursday.

Leisure Services Department staff will continue their training on several new systems in the building over the coming weeks -- so the interim operational hours for public swims and gym use will be 3pm to 8pm Monday to Friday -- and noon to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday.

The city also says  all facility use will be FREE to patrons -- with admission on a first-come, first-serve basis -- until Sunday December 2nd.

The pool has been closed since March of last year -- and was originally expected to reopen in May of this year, but ran into several delays -- the most recent one in August when a deficiency in the tile works around the Main Pool was discovered.
