Working to improve the health of the population and the quality of life of the people we serve.
Recreational water refers to public swimming pools, hot tubs, wading pools, spray parks and public beaches.
Our environmental health officers inspect and approve commercial/public pools and hot tubs regularly for public safety. They also monitor recreational beaches during the swimming season.
Environmental health officers do not inspect private residential pools, pools within an individual room of a hotel, pools that are drained and cleaned after each use, or commercial pools that are maintained for fewer than 4 units or camping sites.
