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. By December 19, 2008 all public pool owners/operators must comply with the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act. This information was provided to operators in Wood County. The act addresses the elimination and mitigation of pool & spa drain entrapment hazards.

If there are questions or concerns call the Wood County Health Department at 715-421-8911 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.
