Environmental Health

Swimming Pools, Spas, and Recreational Water Parks

The goal of the public swimming pool program is to minimize illnesses and injuries associated with contaminated or hazardous conditions in or around swimming pools. Environmental Health reviews plans and issues permits to provide proper construction, operation and maintenance of new or remodeled pools.  The Environmental Health Specialist inspects public pools to ensure adequate safety equipment for emergencies, proper pool chemistry for water disinfection, and facility maintenance to prevent injury and accidental drowning.

Questions pertaining to the Public Swimming Pool permit application process and associated fees should be directed to the local Environmental Health Office. Visit the Office Contact Page for appropriate county contact information.
