28 Jan Medicine Hat installs efficient water system for ice rink
The Journal of Commerce reports on the REALice installation at the Family Leisure Centre (FLC) in Medicine Hat, Alberta.
Residents of Medicine Hat are skating smoother and faster thanks to the installation of a new water treatment system at the city’s Family Leisure Centre (FLC).
The project is the latest part of an ongoing initiative to find operation cost savings and efficiencies within the organization.
“Staff at the FLC have been busy over the last several weeks, testing the new system and prepping the ice surface. This new system allows the ice to freeze faster after a flood than before,” said Stephan Rainville, superintendent of recreation facility operations, in a media release. “When the facility does reopen, rink users will see a difference in the lines and logos within the ice.”
