A watermain break in East Trail on Wednesday, Oct. 12 has temporarily closed the Trail Aquatic and Leisure Centre.

The Aquatic centre was without water service due to the watermain break near Butler Park, and remained closed as of Thursday afternoon.

Advance voting polls remained open Wednesday, but residents in the area were experiencing very low water pressure and were asked to curb water use.

“Trail Parks and Recreation staff will be getting in touch with any user groups who may be impacted by this closure,” read a release.
