Newsclip®: [Health] Harris County to step up inspections of public pools - Houston Chronicle

"More than 2 1/2 years in the making, the proposed regulations would require each public pool - including most of those run by homeowner associations, gymnasiums and apartment complexes as well as some other water features like fountains - to be permitted by the county. To get a permit, the county will conduct a free inspection to make sure the pool is in compliance with state law, said Michael Schaffer, the county's director of environmental public health. The hearing comes days after the Centers for Disease Control released a report calling for 'the need to improve operation and maintenance of U.S. public aquatic facilities,' finding that more than 12 percent of pools nationwide get shut down because of violations found during routine inspections.",
