The EH Section permits facilities and conducts Swimming Pool inspections at a minimum of twice per year. The EH Section also provides education, investigates complaints, and assists the Epidemiology Section with Water-borne Illness Investigations. The regulatory framework for this program is found in the Department of Human Resources Rules for Swimming Pools, Spas, and Recreational Water Parks, Chapter 290-5-57.
