Public and Semi-Public Pools

All public and semipublic pool facilities are required to adhere to the rules set forth in the Richland County Ordinance enacting swimming pool regulations.  The primary goal of these rules is to ensure a safe swimming pool facility by approving the pool designs, regulating water quality, and enforcing recordkeeping practices.  Proper swimming pool design and operating practices protect the public against:​

  • Infections transmitted through the pool
  • Infections transmitted through the bathhouse facilities
  • Physical injury within and about the pool​

Operational standards for Swimming Pools
