Why do these upgrades need to be done?

The Maple Ridge Leisure Center (MRLC) opened in 1981 and has served us well for almost 40 years. However, to continue serving our citizens well into the future, upgrades are needed. The project is driven by the need to update the mechanical and filtration systems. Filtration and pump systems date back to the original construction of the facility and are now obsolete, expensive to maintain and have presented reliability concerns. These upgrades will not only improve the mechanical systems but increase overall accessibility and customer enjoyment.
