Swimming Pool/Spa Program

CHS inspectors are responsible for inspecting the over 300 public swimming pools/spas in the state. There are 3 pool/spa categories: General-use pools/spas, limited-use pools/spas and flow-thru pools/spas. Pools/spas in the general-use category are those facilities that the general public can use. Limited-use pools/spas are those facilities that are operated in connection with a companion facility such as a motel or club. Both of these types of pools/spas use a system of filtration and automatic disinfection to maintain water quality. Flow-thru pools/spas are located in areas where there are naturally occurring hot springs that provide the water for the pools/spas. These pools/spas rely on the natural flow of water through them to maintain adequate water quality. The water in the flow-thru pools/spas in Wyoming is not filtered and receives no disinfection. As in the food establishment inspection frequencies, CHS inspectors risk assess the pools/spas to determine how often each pool/spa is inspected. Each pool/spa is inspected at least one time per year.
