Are Reports Available for All Recreational Water Facilities?
Reports are only available for recreational water facilities the Health Unit is aware of and has inspected. Recreational water facilities include public pools, spas, splash pads and wading pools. If they are not listed they are not inspected.
How Do I Interpret the Reports?
The inspection report only indicates the conditions observed on the day of inspection, so to get a better idea of ongoing compliance we encourage you to view reports over time instead of just looking at the last report. Our Public Health Inspectors inspect recreational water facilities, to make sure that they are safe for our local citizens to use. Inspectors test water quality, look for health and safety hazard concerns and ensure that the required equipment, safety equipment and signage is in place.
Why Do Some Places Have More Inspections Than Others in the Same Year?
The number of inspections that each type of recreational water facility receives each year is based on the type of facility and the length of time the facility is operating and any re-inspections that may be required to ensure compliance. Additional inspections may be required to follow up on complaints.
