The Cowichan Aquatic Centre and Fuller Lake Arena will soon see significant infrastructure investments.
The Municipality of North Cowichan will spend approximately $392,000 on energy projects at the aquatic centre, council decided Wednesday.
The projects include replacing the facility’s hot water system with a new more energy-efficient system that includes solar components.
The funding will also pay for the completion of the centre’s LED lighting conversion program.
As well, the Fuller Lake Arena will have its electrical transformer replaced, at a cost of $351,000.
The projects are included in the municipality’s estimated 2.96 per cent budget increase for 2016.
