City to invest $11 million in public pools

The City of Montreal will invest $11 million over the next three years to fix up its pools.

On Wednesday, the city's executive committee approved the Montreal Water Program (MWP) to upgrade pools and wading pools Montreal.

A third of the city's wading pools have no filtration system and are in a state of disrepair — though a part of the plan calls for some of these to be converted into playgrounds or demolished.

In order to be entitled to a portion of the funds dedicated to the rehabilitation of the aquatic equipment, districts must file an application with the city center.

If approved, the MWP will fund up to 50 % of project costs.
