Public Pools, Spas and Splash Pads

Recreational water facilities are inspected by Public Health to ensure compliance with Ontario Regulation 565/90 (Public Pools).

Each spring, Hastings Prince Edward Public Health offers a free training course covering the important elements of safe pool and spa operation. This course, intended primarily for pool and spa owners/operators and lifeguards, provides information on such topics as:

  • legal responsibilities
  • infectious diseases
  • water chemistry and testing
  • recirculation systems
  • facility management
  • grounds for facility closure

If you’re opening or re-opening a pool or spa, complete and submit the Notification Form at least 14 days prior to opening. A Public Health Inspector will contact you.
