The objective of this program is to minimize the risk of disease and injury at public swimming pools and bathing places. Chapter 64E-9, F.A.C., governs sanitary standards and practices at these facilities.

Sixteen county health departments have been delegated the authority to review plans and issue permits: Broward, Collier, Dade, Duval, Escambia, Hillsborough, Lee, Manatee, Okaloosa, Palm Beach, Pinellas, Polk, Santa Rosa, Sarasota, Volusia, and Walton. All county health departments conduct routine inspections, collect samples, and maintain standards at public swimming pools and bathing areas. When violations are found, county health departments take action to enforce Florida laws. This can include immediate closure of a facility.

Florida beach water monitoring sample locations.

Beginning with a 1998 pilot program, 11 Florida coastal counties began conducting beach water sampling every two weeks and reporting the results here and in local news media. In August 2000, the beach water sampling program was expanded to include the 34 Florida counties shown on the map below. In August 2002, the coastal counties began collecting weekly samples.

The coastal beach water samples collected by the county health departments are analyzed for enterococci and fecal coliform bacteria. High concentrations of these bacteria may indicate the presence of microorganisms that could cause disease, infections, or rashes. County health departments will issue health advisories or warnings when these conditions are confirmed.
