Recreational Water Quality
Environmental Health licenses and inspects public swimming pools to monitor health and safety conditions at each facility.
Maryland State and County regulations provide the minimum requirements for the operation of public swimming pools and spas. Inspectors evaluate public swimming pools and spas for specific health and safety conditions, which are likely to contribute to injuries and waterborne disease. If a health or safety violation is observed, the condition must be corrected immediately or the public swimming pool or spa risks being closed.
