- This will be the first large pool in the city, where people from Mednogorsk will be able to engage in water sports sports. It will have everything you need - the pool itself with 4 lanes, where more than 30 people can train at the same time, a preparatory room, a chemical laboratory. Completion of construction is planned for 2022. A new sports facility will appear in Mednogorsk thanks to the region's socio-economic partnership with the Mednogorsk copper and sulfur plant. We are grateful to the management of the plant and UMMC for this contribution to the development of sports and, in general, for their participation in the life of the city. The sports and recreation complex that appeared here last year is also a merit of the enterprise, - Denis Pasler emphasized.
The total cost of building an indoor swimming pool will amount to about 221 million rubles. Of these, 95 million rubles have been allocated to the budget of the Mednogorsk Copper and Sulfur Combine this year.
- Today we are attending the ceremony of starting the construction of a large sports facility, which, I am sure, will be in demand by Mednogorsk residents as well as the Sokol health and fitness complex, which in Mednogorsk is rightfully considered the center of the city's sports life. Pupils of the local sports school, retirees, workers of the MMSK and other organizations study here. This is part of our long-term policy of creating a comfortable environment for living in the territories where the enterprises of the Ural Mining and Metallurgical Company are located, - said UMMC General Director Andrey Kozitsyn.
A team of 15 people will ensure the functioning of the swimming pool. The pool itself will be built on the territory of the Trud stadium, which is considered one of the best sports arenas in the Eastern Orenburg region.
