Procedures for Opening a Swimming Pool/Spa for the Swimming Season/Renewing a Pool Permit
A Public Swimming Pool is not allowed to open for public use without first having passed its opening inspection and paid all fees associated with the pool/spa. It is the management company's responsibility to follow-up on the information submitted to this office. If a pool or spa is found to be operating without a valid Public Swimming Pool permit the facility will be closed by the Environmental Health Office and the responsible party will be required to pay double all applicable fees and the pool must pass the inspection before reopening.
The Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act was effective December 19, 2008. While this legislation is enforced by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, there are portions of the legislation with local requirements that must be considered.
The following forms must be completed in order to comply with the Virginia Graeme Bake Pool and Spa Safety Act:
1. Main Drain Calculations (pdf) - This form must be utilized for any main drain cover that is installed, regardless of the number of main drains located at the pool or spa. This ensures that the proposed main drain cover(s) will meet both federal and local requirements.
2. Abbreviated Plan Review When Converting a Single Main Drain Pool Into A Multiple Main Drain Pool (pdf) - This form must be utilized for any pool or spa that is converting from a single main drain pool to a multiple main drain pool or spa. This ensures that the aspects of the alteration will meet local requirements.
