Environmental Public Health: Swimming Pools & Spas
The EPH Division of the Asotin County Health District manages the permitting and inspection of public swimming pools and spas to assure that public health and safety standards are being maintained. In Asotin County, these include the Asotin County Family Aquatic Center as well as pools at athletic or private clubs, municipal or park facilities, hotels, motels, apartments, condominiums, mobile home parks, RV parks, and homeowner association communities.
During field inspections, chemical testing is used to evaluate water quality, water monitoring and record keeping is reviewed, facility maintenance is evaluated, education materials are provided and compliance/enforcement of regulations is discussed as necessary.
Many of the documents and links on this site are designed to assist with the proper permitting, installation and operation of swimming pools and spas that are accessed by the public, but there is also information that is useful for private pools and spas to minimize the risk of drownings and communicable disease issues.
