Public Swimming Pools

Permits and Inspections
Every year, public swimming pool operators must obtain a permit before the pool can be opened. Once the permit is issued, at least one inspection is made for seasonal pools and two for year-round pools.

A pool can be closed for violation of water quality standards or other problems that are determined to be an imminent hazard.

Public swimming pools include swimming pools, wading pools, spas, and hot tubs.
