​The 2020 Pool Season is Approaching!  children playing in a public swimming pool

All seasonal pools must receive and pass a permit inspection prior to opening for the 2020 season.

 

Public swimming pools are subject to State and Local Rules and Regulations. Each year, public swimming pools must renew their permits to operate and be inspected by Environmental Health staff. Information and resources regarding local and state public swimming pool requirements are provided below.

The Mecklenburg County Health Ordinance also requires approval to construct a residential swimming pool
