Swimming Pools:
Cleveland Department of Public Health

Cleveland Department of Public Health licenses and inspects all public swimming pools and spas in our jurisdiction. Public swimming pools and spas include those owned and operated by cities, apartments, condominiums, hotels/motels, private swim clubs, country clubs, community or homeowner associations, and health clubs. These do not include pools and spas located at peoples privately owned homes.

Our Sanitarians routinely conduct inspections of all pools within the City of Cleveland. All operators are required to keep records of water quality testing results and accidents on a Weekly Operation Report, which is a vital part of the City’s inspection procedure.
