Public Swimming Pools and Spas

We license all public pools and spas in Ashland County. These include public swimming pools, wading pools, special use pools, spas, and spray grounds. Please contact us if your facility is thinking about modifying your public pool/spa/spray grounds, or if you need to purchase a new piece of equipment. Depending on the extent, some changes may require prior approval from the Ohio Department of Health (ODH). New public pools/spas/spray grounds must complete a plan review with ODH as well. 

Year-round pools and spas are inspected twice a year and seasonal establishments are inspected annually. These inspections protect the public from injury, minimize the potential for disease transmission, and provide a healthy and safe recreational water environment.
