The Nebraska Legislature passed the Swimming Pool Act in 1969.  In accordance with the Swimming Pool Act,  the Swimming Pool Program provides oversight and inspections of swimming pools.  The Swimming Pool Program staff inspects all public swimming pools/spas to include hotels, apartments, municipal pools and recreational facilities.  During inspections, Department staff checks water chemistry, safety equipment, personnel training and mechanical areas. 

DHHS also provides training to individuals who would like to become pool operators within the State of Nebraska.
