Pools & Water Attractions

Public Pools and Water Attractions in Wood County are inspected annually for physical safety, water quality and chemistry. In 2008 a New Pool Code went into effect as a result of the broader variety of water recreation facilities and chemical and safety requirements. All operators in Wood County were contacted and offered to attend a free informational forum about the notable changes in the pool code. By December 19, 2008 all public pool owners/operators must comply with the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool & Spa Safety Act. This information is also being provided to operators in Wood County. The act addresses the elimination and mitigation of pool & spa drain entrapment hazards. The web links on this page will take you to documents that fully explain the new pool code, the notable changes in the code, and the new Virginia Graeme Baker Act.

If there are questions or concerns call the Wood County Health Department at 715-421-8911, or 715-387-8646, and ask for Environmental Health. To contact the Department of Commerce for compliance with the new requirements email or call, James H. Miller at Jim.miller@wi.gov, or phone: 608-266-8072.
