Swimming Pools & Spas

Environmental Health ensures safety, proper sanitation and compliance with pool code requirements.

Before constructing or altering a swimming pool, spa, etc. or associated structure or equipment (such as fencing and decking), plan approval must be obtained from the Environmental Health.

Environmental Health conducts routine, unannounced inspections and complaint investigations at Santa Cruz County’s public pools, spas, wading pools and spray grounds to verify compliance with pool code requirements and Santa Cruz County Ordinances.
