Arapahoe County inspects public and semi-public pools, including pools and spas at childcare centers, schools, and mobile home parks. Private swimming pools are those that are associated with single family dwellings, condominiums or apartment houses, and are intended only for the use of the residents of those facilities (HOA pools are also considered private pools).
During a routine inspection, the pump room, the overall facility, the bodies of water, and the water chemistry are checked to make sure they are in compliance with Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment's Swimming Pools and Mineral Baths Regulations.
If you find an unsanitary condition existing at a public pool or spa, contact the Arapahoe County Public Health Environmental Health office.
Pool Plan Reviews
At least 30 days prior to the construction, enlarging, remodeling, or modification of a public or semi-public swimming area or related facilities, the plans and specifications complete with piping layout, equipment, and mechanical specifications along with design calculations must be submitted to the health department for review and recommendations.
The Swimming Pool and Plans and Specification Packet and $120 plan review fee can be submitted to any of our Environmental Health Offices.
Pool plan reviews are not required for private pools.
