Our Recreational Water program helps to protect our community when enjoying the many beaches, pools, whirlpools, splash pads, wading pools, and waterslides in Windsor and Essex County.


Our Public Health Inspectors inspect these premises throughout the year when they are open. In the summer our Health Inspectors assess local beaches for safety and sample the water each week to test for bacteria. For more information on beaches during the summer months, contact our Beach Hotline at 519-258-2146 ext. 426 or access our beach information online.

Pools, Spas, Spray/Splashpads and Waterslides

In addition to inspections of recreational water, our Health Inspection Department offers in-class and online training for pool operators. The course provides operators with education regarding pool safety and compliance with the Public Pool Regulation 565 and Public Spa Regulation 428/05 . For more information on pool safety and education, access our recreational water facility information.
