Recreational Water

Activities on and in our local bodies of water, pools and spas help us be active and enjoy the benefits of being outside. Safe recreational water activities are fundamental to our communities. The health unit works with our municipalities, and private businesses to reduce the incidence of water borne diseases and injuries that may be linked to the use of public recreational water facilities such as beaches, public pools and spas, wading pools and splash pads. Through education, inspection, testing and where necessary enforcement actions, issues are addressed so the public can enjoy using these facilities knowing safety precautions are in place. When conditions at any of these facilities are such where a health hazard exists, you will see either a posting notice on our beaches and on our website, or a closed sign at entrances to pools, spas etc. until such time as the conditions improve. We encourage you to pay attention to conditions around you to protect yourself and your family.

 

Public Beaches

Public beaches include any public bathing area owned/operated by a municipality which the general public has access and where there is reason to believe the area has been designated for swimming ie. signage, buoy lines, safety equipment.

 

Public Pools and Spas

Public pools and spas are regulated in Ontario to ensure proper treatment of water to reduce the transmission of disease, and to prevent injury. They are divided into two categories Class A and Class B. Class A pools typically have lifeguards on duty, whereas Class B pools are typically unsupervised. We encourage all parents to supervise their children around any pools/spas.

 

Wading Pools and Splash Pads

These recreational water facilities are currently not-regulated by specific legislation; however they are required to be operated in such a manner as to ensure good water quality and be free of safety hazards that may cause injury.
