We monitor recreational facilities and public beaches to ensure your safety.
Public beaches are inspected for visible hazards and sources of contamination. If water samples exceeds the safety limit, our beach operators will post warning signs that the water does not meet health standards for swimming or wading. This is because there is a higher risk of acquiring an infection above this level of contamination.
Swimming pools, hot tubs and similar recreational water facilities are inspected to ensure compliance with the Pool Regulation. Our environmental health officers verify that facilities are meeting standard safety practices to reduce the risks of injuries and the spread of diseases.
We do not inspect or monitor private residential pools. In general, hazard ratings are assigned based on an assessment of violations or conditions noted at the time of inspection.
