Franklin County boasts over 25 pools that are inspected each year by Environmental Health. That’s 1 swimming pool for every 2000 citizens. 


Inspections cover proper water quality, proper sanitation and pH control, accessibility of safety equipment and other important factors to assure the public that pools are safe and healthy. 902 KAR 10:120 establishes uniform standards for public swimming pools and other swimming or bathing facilities.  The function of this administrative regulation is to assure the proper design and construction of new facilities as related to water distribution and treatment systems, and the proper operation and maintenance of all such facilities in a manner which will protect public health.

Public swimming and bathing facilities that are inspected can be located but may not be limited to the following:

1. Housing complexes
2. Hotels and Motels
3. Parks and Recreational facilities
4. Community-service organizations

All swimming and bathing facilities must comply with the laws and regulations given forth by the State of Kentucky. For information on these laws and regulations please visit the state's Environmental Management Branch.
