WEST KELOWNA - Chlorine room upgrades at Johnson Bentley Memorial Aquatic Centre and the final phases of the Upper Glenrosa Plan have received contributions under the federal Gas Tax Fund.

The 25 year old JBMAC chlorine room had reached the end of its useful life and required upgrades to meet modern health and safety standards and reduce operational costs and improve efficiencies. The project had to be completed in September, to meet health guidelines and coincide with the aquatic centre’s annual maintenance shutdown.

The Upper Glenrosa Plan Phases 2 and 3 will focus on creating an infrastructure servicing strategy for the area and a secondary access/egress out of the City of West Kelowna’s largest neighbourhood by population. Work on the next phases of the Upper Glenrosa Plan is expected to begin in the fall, as the Central Okanagan Planning Study is being completed.

The Johnson Bentley Memorial Aquatic Centre chlorine room will receive $85,000, representing 100% of project costs, through the federal Gas Tax Fund. The Upper Glenrosa Plan, Phases 2 and 3, will receive $100,152, representing 100% of project costs, through the federal Gas Tax Fund.
