Swimming Pools

Swimming pools and hot tubs are used for competition, recreation, exercise, and relaxation. We all expect these pools to be safe. The Wasatch County Health Department conducts periodic inspections on all public pool facilities. Water chemistry and water quality is checked routinely. All public pools need to be permitted by the Wasatch County Health Department. All public pools are required to have a Certified Pool Operator to maintain the facilities to the expected standards. The Certified Pool Operator must also be registered with the health department. (FORMS are on the left hand side of the page)

Plan review fee is $150.00
