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.
