Swimming Pool Inspection
IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING POOL INSPECTIONSEffective Oct. 1, 2022, plan reviews for facilities with public and semi-public pools and spas within Williamson County and Cities Health District’s (WCCHD) jurisdiction will no longer be mandatory, and permitting will be discontinued.
The Williamson County Board of Health rescinded County Order No. 2019-011 Regarding the Regulation of Public Swimming Pools, Spas, Artificial Swimming Lagoons, and Interactive Water Features and Fountains on Sep. 14, 2022.
WCCHD will continue to be available to provide technical support, opinion, and safety inspections upon request for those owners/operators of existing facilities and owners seeking construction plan reviews*.
WCCHD will respond to infectious disease-related complaints at commercial pools, spas, artificial lagoons, and splash pads. All other structural, safety/drowning prevention, and pool operation issues will be referred to the appropriate local City Code Enforcement or Williamson County Commissioners for investigation, remediation, regulation, and determining compliance of these aquatic facilities with applicable state statutes and regulations and City ordinances.
Please contact EH@wilco.org or 512-248-7620 for questions.
*Public and semi-public pools and spas are those facilities operated by a City or County agency, a Home Owners Association, Apartments/Condos, Hotels and other forms of lodging, and commercial pools. The program does not include private residential (backyard) pools.
