The Johnson County Department of Health and Environment is asking the community to review and provide feedback to the proposed changes to the current draft of the updated Aquatic Health Code (Draft 2).

An initial feedback session on the first draft, Aquatic Health Code (Draft 1), was held on March 26. Comments received from that meeting resulted in a second draft of the code.

The purpose of updating the Johnson County Aquatic Health Code is to ensure public health through safe, evidence-based practice in the management of public and semi-public swimming pools, spas and public beaches. 

The public meeting will be held on Thursday, May 9, 2024, from 3:30-5 p.m. at the Sunset Drive Office Building, Room 1055, 11811 S. Sunset Drive, Olathe, Kansas 66061.

Feedback about the code can also be sent to jcdhe@jocogov.org through May 31, 2024. 

“It is important to ensure the public health, safety, comfort and well-being of the community through the minimization of disease and contamination by managing these systems properly,” said Charlie Hunt, JCDHE director.
