Rules and Regulations for Water Recreation Facilities

 

WAC 246-262-001 The purpose of the rules is to protect the health, safety, and welfare of users of recreational water contact facilities (RWCFs).  A "RWCF" is a  recreational water contact facility which is an artificial water associated facility with design and operational features that provide patron recreational activity which is different from that associated with a conventional swimming pool and purposefully involves immersion of the body partially or totally in the water and includes, but is not limited to, water slides, wave pools, and water lagoons.
 

New regulations require anyone operating a water recreation facility to have a current permit.  In Whitman County, special attention is given to safety issues.  Construction, water quality, protective barriers, and waterborne diseases and illnesses are monitored and enforced to ensure the public health's.  Those agencies and individuals who are permitted, are able to work and communicate with an Environmental Health Specialist to ensure all requirements are met. The permits are good for one year, and must be renewed annually.  Click here to download an application
