All of Washtenaw County’s public swimming pools are inspected by the Environmental Health Division to ensure the pools are following State guidelines. Seasonal outdoor pools must pass an inspection before they are allowed to open, and year-round pools must pass yearly inspections to remain open. In addition, all public pool waters are sampled every two weeks to determine disinfectant and bacteria levels. A public pool will be closed if it is not operating in compliance with state and local rules and regulations.
