On 8/8/2017 the
Jackson County Board of Health voted to adopt the new state pool rules &
regs that the state of Georgia passed earlier this year. Further details will
be mailed out to the permitted pools of Jackson County before the 2018 season.
The new regs can be found on the state website. The link is below.
All public swimming pools must have VGB compliant main drain covers. These covers must be replaced as per manufacturer specification.
Below you will find more information about the work we do permitting and inspecting community pools. If there is a change of ownership or construction of a new pool please fill out the pool plan review application.
Our department conducts yearly opening inspections for pools. Before a pool can open each season it must be in compliance with various safety standards.Please click the form below for the pool opening checklist. Items marked with an asterisk * result in immediate closure if marked out of compliance.
