|Board of Health dives into swimming pool discussion|
|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
During their May 28 meeting, members of the Board of Health dove into the Voluntary Swimming Pool and Spa safety program at the Northeast Colorado Health Department. As the program is entering its fifth year, board members questioned how it was coming along and inquired about participation.
The swimming pool and spa safety program was created in an effort to reach out to the 33 swimming pools and spas in northeast Colorado to help monitor what could be a potential source for disease outbreaks, including gastrointestinal, skin, ear, respiratory, eye and wound infections.
Although swimming pools and spas are required to meet health and safety regulations per state statute and federal regulations, there is no agency in this area to enforce those regulations.
