Public Swimming Pools and Spas
The Wayne County Health Department annually licenses and inspects all public pools, spas, and special-use pools in Wayne County at locations such as community parks, private clubs, housing developments, hotels and motels, apartment complexes, and campgrounds. Our inspectors look at the facility's overall health and safety to assure compliance with the State swimming pool code. Inspection criteria include checks of: water quality (pH, disinfectant levels, total alkalinity, clarity, temperature), weekly operational records, lifeguard records, if applicable, chemical storage, pump and filter equipment, test kits, and safety equipment (first aid kits, reach pole, ring buoy, telephone).
Special Note: Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Extended the Compliance date for standards for accessible design for public pools and spas to January 31, 2013. For more information visit www.ADA.gov.
