Swimming Pool & Spa Monitoring
All public pools and spas in the Central Utah area are sampled and tested by the Environmental Health Department. Our Environmental Health scientists inspect public pools on an annual basis, or when a complaint is received.
Pool operators are responsible for taking samples on a monthly basis while pools are open. Seasonal pools are not required to sample when they are closed. Public pools are pools that charge admission (city, county, or school operated) or are offered to public use, such as pools operated by hotels, motels and apartment or condo complexes.
All public pools are required to have a certified operator. CUPHD offers a National Swimming Pool Foundation-affiliated, Certified Pool Operator training class in May. To reach one of our NSPF-certified instructors, contact the Richfield Office at (435) 896-5451.
