Swimming Pools & Spas


Environmental health staff has, and maintains, a working knowledge of all applicable swimming pool and spa laws, rules, and regulations as set forth in Chapter 17, Article III, Sec. 17-81 through 105 of the Code of Ordinances, as well as any provisions set forth by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.

Staff conduct annual sanitation and safety inspections, including necessary chemical testing of all public and semiprivate pools and spas permitted by the City of St. Joseph. Preconstruction plan reviews for new facilities, as well as preopening inspections prior to the opening of a new facility, are also completed by environmental health staff.
