Recreational Water Safety

Recreational water is any water that is used for pleasure, exercise or relaxation. Recreational water facilities include any public beaches, pools, hot tubs, splash pads, and wading pools. 

The Northwestern Health Unit inspects public recreational water facilities to ensure they are safe for the public to enjoy. 

For more information or the latest inspection results please contact a Public Health Inspector during work hours at your local health unit office.
