Water Quality Program
The goal of the Water Quality Program is to ensure safe water for recreational, nonpotable and potable uses. Unsafe water can lead to a bacterial or viral infection, particularly in vulnerable populations such as young children. Maintaining safe conditions in recreational swimming pools and spas helps prevent drowning and the spread of infectious diseases.
