Swimming Pools

Unsecured / Unmaintained Swimming Pools


All private pools, spas and hot tubs, fish ponds and other water features with a depth of 24 inches or more must be secured by a barrier, which can be a fence, wall, building wall or combination thereof which completely surrounds the swimming pool and obstructs access to the swimming pool.

Fence height must be at least four feet and all gates and doors must be self-closing and self-latching. Water features must be maintained in a sanitary condition. Water may not be stagnant or a breeding ground for mosquitoes.

Above-ground pools must meet the same requirements as in-ground pools.
