Department of Public Health proposed rule: Public Pools - Pools & Spas –
Heath, Safety and Security Requirements
involved with water quality at public pools.
comments to: Jennifer Hatfield, firstname.lastname@example.org
Summary: The Department proposed amendments to the rules
impacting public swimming pools. The updates will amend the existing public
pool rules to ensure they are consistent with the Model Aquatic Health Code
Requirements. Specifically, the proposal will remove the requirement to test
for and maintain combined-chlorine concentrations at 0.4 parts per million
(ppm). The changes are necessary to incorporate updates from the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention in August 2014 regarding combined-chlorine
monitoring. The proposed update will amend public pool operation and
maintenance regulations that affect public pool sanitation, health, and safety
practices in California.
Status: Staff approved and submitted the rule to OAL for
review. OAL approved the rule. The rule is effective January 1.
