New Year's Resolution #5 - Upgrading pool plants
In our drive to be kinder to the environment in 2020, we have been looking at several areas of the organisation where we can 'do our bit.'
Pool Plant upgrades 2019/2020
In 2019 we upgraded the pool plants at six of our swimming pools across the county including Rothbury Pool and Gym, Willowburn Sports and Leisure Centre in Alnwick, Wentworth Leisure Centre in Hexham, Prudhoe Waterworld, Blyth Sports Centre and Concordia Leisure Centre in Cramlington.
This is all part of a £1 million investment programme by Active Northumberland and Northumberland County Council.
Much of the ageing pool plant equipment across these sites has been replaced leading to improved water quality and a need for less chemicals. The installation of new and modern plant equipment has also helped us improve energy efficiency. Prudhoe Waterworld's pool is the last pool to be upgraded, and is planned to be completed by early April 2020.
