    Back to Environmental Public Health

    Swimming is fun and healthy. Let's keep it that way.

    Program Overview


    The Water Recreation Program protects public health by working with owners and operators of public and semi-public water recreation facilities to prevent drowning, illnesses and injuries. Approximately 189 seasonal and 78 annual facilities in Spokane County are permitted and inspected at least annually for compliance with state regulations. 

    The Water Recreation Program provides additional services, such as plan review and pre-occupancy inspections of new or modified facilities, response to public health or safety concerns regarding permitted facilities, and water safety consultations for pool owners and operators. The program also works with community partners to provide drowning prevention education to the public.  

    Two environmental health specialists (inspectors) and a technical advisor staff the Water Recreation Program, in addition to clerical and management support.
