Recreational Water

Keeping your public beaches and swimming pools safe

Recreational water facilities include public beaches, swimming pools, hot tubs, wading pool and water parks.

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.
