The Environmental Health Division inspects nearly 70 indoor and outdoor public swimming pools and spas in Livingston County annually and works with the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) to open new facilities in the county.
Routine inspections are conducted each year to ensure an environment is safe for swimming. During these inspections, water tests are performed to measure the disinfectant residual, pH, alkalinity and when necessary cyanuric acid. In addition, the walking surfaces, access doors and fences, recirculation equipment, and emergency equipment and procedures are evaluated.
In the instance that a pool is determined to be noncompliant with local and state rules and regulations, a pool closure order will be issued. The swimming pool must remain closed until compliance is achieved and a re-inspection is performed.
A plan review is required of all public pools and spas prior to their construction, alteration or renovation. All plans are reviewed to ensure compliance with the Michigan Public Swimming Pool Rules and the Livingston County Health Department Sanitary Code.
