Wanaka's public pool is expected to reopen within two months,
following a Queenstown Lakes District Council decision to
spend $115,000 to strengthen the Wanaka Community Pool
building as a temporary measure.
An ex-civil engineer training for his second attempt at
swimming the length of Lake Wanaka says the Queenstown Lakes
District Council made the right call in closing Wanaka's
public pool because of earthquake risks.
