Muswellbrook Shire Council is defending the latest in a string of delays in the aquatic centre upgrade project.
The upgrade has been the subject of multiple issues and is several years overdue.
Council previously made a big deal about the recreational facility finally opening to the public on the 2nd of July but this has been put back by another week at the eleventh hour.
But Muswellbrook Mayor Steve Reynolds said this latest delay, caused by power issues, is beyond council's control.
