Swimming Pools and Hot Tubs

Public Health Inspectors work diligently to ensure the recreational waters you use are safe and to prevent the spread of diseases through contact with recreational waters. Recreational waters can include the use of beaches, hot tubs, swimming pools, or even sensory deprivation tanks.

Public Swimming pools are regulated under The Swimming Pool Regulations, 1999 and two different Design and Operational Standards.
