LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Pools and spas in Tippecanoe County now have updated rules for inspection. November of 1992 was the last time Tippecanoe County Health Department updated its spa and pool ordinances and the Health Department Administrator Craig Rich says it's about time.

It is all about safety, Rich says. A lot has changed in 25 years.

"Splash pads, even these waterparks that we didn't have anything like that in 1992 and this ordinance also talks about specifically to make sure they are discussed in this ordinance," said Rich

The health department will be enforcing these updated rules at public and semi-public pools and spas in Tippecanoe County. That includes apartment complexes and hotels.

The state department of health is also updating pool and spa ordinances. Rich says Tippecanoe County's is similar.
