UPDATE (16 January 2020): The Aqualink Box Hill outdoor pool has re-opened as the air quality has improved. Council will continue to monitor air quality and update as needed.
14 January 2020
The outdoor pool at Aqualink Box Hill has been closed in consideration of the current EPA air quality rating of Hazardous for Box Hill. Officers will continue to monitor the situation but expect the outdoor pool to be closed for the remainder of the day and possibly into tomorrow with the current smoke haze not expected to clear until Wednesday afternoon.
Steps have also been taken at Aqualink Nunawading, AQBH and Sportlink to reduce the fresh air intakes to minimise impacts so these indoor facilities remain open.
Morack Golf Course also remains open with golf course staff advising patrons with respiratory issues not to play.
