Public Swimming Pools
In order to protect public health, the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department (LLCHD) inspects all public swimming pools. This includes hotels, apartments, golf courses, municipal pools and recreational facilities. During inspections LLCHD checks water chemistry, safety equipment, personnel training and mechanical areas.
Starting in 2015, LLCHD requires that all required water chemistry tests be done by either a Lincoln Swimming Pool Operator or a Lincoln Water Quality Tester.
LLCHD also works with the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to provide training to individuals who would like to become pool operators within the state of Nebraska. In addition, LLCHD and DHHS inspect all new public swimming pools that have been constructed.
