Swimming Pool Program

The swimming pool program protects the health of Bear River Health District residents 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 disinfection; collecting and evaluating surveillance data on diseases associated with poor sanitation; training industry professionals; and creating partnerships with local industry to enhance pool safety and protect the public.
