clean safe pools The Consumer Health Division's swimming pool sanitation program is designed to protect the health and safety of people in the county who use these facilities. The program includes inspecting and permitting each public or semi-public facility within the Health District's jurisdiction. The requirements for pool operation are taken from the county regulation "Rules on Swimming Pool Sanitation" and the following applicable regulations from the Texas Department of State Health Services:
Permitting, Fees, and Inspections
An application form must be filled out for each public or semi-public pool or spa. Approval for a permit requires the owner or operator to provide information on the latest results of water samples tested for bacteriological safety, the name of their certified operator, pass an inspection and pay a permit fee of $135 annually for each permit. The pools are inspected annually and when complaints are received.
