Pool Inspections and Regulations
Fulton County is responsible for approving permits and inspecting over 1,800 public swimming pools. Public swimming pools are facilities used by the public for swimming, regardless of whether the person is the owner, operator, lesser, lessee or licensor. Private residential pools are not included in this description. All public swimming pools need annual permits and inspections are performed routinely based on their operating season. Plans for all new pools are reviewed and must be approved by Environmental Health Services prior to construction.
Permits for pools that are operated all year round are due to expire on March 1 of each year. Permits for pools that are operated on a seasonal basis expire on May 1 of each year. If you do not receive an invoice for your pool(s) by April 30, please contact the Fulton County Board of Health’s Environmental Health Department at 770-520-7472.
