Swimming Pools

The swimming program serves to protect the health of Utah citizens and visitors by preventing exposure to harmful levels of environmental agents of disease and injury that might be found in pools without such prevention.  Activities include identifying deficiencies in pool water quality disinfections; collecting and evaluating surveillance data on diseases associated with poor sanitation; training local health department and industry professionals; writing and interpreting state safety standards for public pools; and creating partnerships with local health departments and industry to enhance pool safety and protect the public.

Public pools must be supervised by an operator that is certified or re-certified by a program of training and testing that is approved by the Utah Department of Health and Human Services. To find course information, click on one of the links below:
