The Junee Aquatic Centre pool will be tiled as one of the major projects to be funded by a $1 million drought grant.
A variety of community infrastructure projects aimed at stimulating drought-affected economies has been approved under the Drought Communities Program.
Projects include camping ground upgrades at Sandy Beach in Wantabadgery and the Bethungra Dam, as well as fencing at Junee, Illabo, Bethungra and Old Junee cemeteries.
Junee mayor Neil Smith said the funding would see upgrades across the region, with pedestrian and bicycle pathways and new seating and tables to be installed in the villages.
"We wanted to make sure we spread it around the shire," Cr Smith said.
Cr Smith said the amount of funding being directed into regional communities at the moment was "unprecedented" and unlikely to be seen for a long time again after coronavirus.
He said the council would be able to fund much-needed projects including renovations to the Junee museum and visitor information centre.
The tiling of the swimming pool floor, something Cr Smith said the council would otherwise not be able to afford, will save money in the long term by significantly reducing the frequency of required maintenance.
"At the moment it's a painted surface and it requires painting on a very regular basis ... every time we've got to do it we've got to drain the pool, it's disruptive to the users of the pool, it costs money to fill it up again and that much water is not cheap," he said.
As part of the requirements of the funding the Junee Shire Council will also develop an adverse events plan to prepare for future drought events.
