The goal of the Department of Public Health pools program is to:
- Reduce substantial health hazards and other risk factors that lead to illness or injury through training and enforcement.
- Conduct complaint investigations associated with swimming pools, spas and recreational waterparks.
- Perform compliance inspections on all regulated facilities to ensure adherence to design, operation and maintenance rules.
Environmental Health Specialists inspect both seasonal and year-round pools to ensure chemical levels are sufficient to protect swimmers from most harmful organisms as well as ensure adequate safety equipment is present.
