The goal of the swimming pool and spa program is to prevent water borne disease and accidents at public facilities. A license is required for any pool or spa serving four families or more.
Disease is prevented by maintaining proper water chemistry, as well as, properly operating recirculation, filtration and disinfection equipment. These items are checked during each pool and spa inspection. The availability of safety equipment, warning signs, lifeguard certifications and the maintenance and sanitation of related structures are checked. Operators are required to keep a log of the water quality tests, accidents which occurred and chemicals added on a Weekly Operation Report. For situations when a pool or spa is contaminated with fecal or vomitus material, the Fecal Incident Flow Chart must be followed.
