According to a report presented to Vancouver Park Board on Monday, Kitsilano Pool is leaking 30,000 litres of water every hour and engineers have no idea where the leaks are.
“This is a devastating report on the Kits pool. We’re at the end of life on the Kits pool,” said commissioner Tom Digby in response to the presentation.
The park board heard that the upgrades performed in 2018 were expected to significantly extend the lifetime of the salt water pool, but extensive damage from the January 2020 tidal surge and rainstorm had reversed much of that work.
