Workers broke ground Tuesday on an $18 million municipal indoor pool facility in Ottawa's east end.

The LEED-silver project, entirely funded by taxpayers, includes a six-lane, 25-metre pool, a leisure pool, a fitness centre, a sauna and a multi-purpose room.
Laurin & Co. is the general contractor for the project, GRC Architects is designing the facility, and there are two project managers: Richard Fouchard, and MHPM Project Managers' Daniel Gosselin.
A release from the city did not disclose individual amounts for the project participants.
The facility at 2263 Portobello Blvd., near Innes and Trim roads, is scheduled to open in January 2013.
