City of Beloit officials are reminding residents of some rules and regulations the city has for swimming pools capable of holding more than 2 feet of water.
According to a release, all outdoor swimming pools that can hold more than 2 feet of water must be surrounded by a fence that is at least 4 feet high, and owners must have a valid permit before installing the pool.
Above-ground swimming pools that are available at retailers are also subject to the requirements, officials said.
All swimming pools must also be properly disinfected, and pools deeper than 4 feet must have a throwing buoy and lifeline available, according to the release.
Residents that already have a permit and fence for their swimming pools do not need to take any action, officials said.
Anyone with questions or looking to report an unsafe pool should call 608-364-6700.
