Pools, Bathing Beaches, Spa and Therapy Pools
University Director of Environmental Health and Safety
The policy of Indiana University is to provide safe and sanitary bathing beaches, swimming, spa, and therapy pool environments and to minimize the risks associated with water venues. The primary method by which that is accomplished is through compliance with applicable regulations, including: Indiana State Department of Health’s Title 410 IAC 6-2.1, Title 410 IAC 6-7.2, and Indiana’s Department of Homeland Security, Division of Fire Prevention and Building Safety, Title 675 IAC 20.
Water venues operated by Indiana University Bloomington and Bradford Woods are regulated and inspected by University Environmental Health and Safety-Bloomington. Water venues in Indianapolis are permitted, regulated, and inspected by the Marion County Public Health Department in Indianapolis, IN.
The bathing beach at Camp Brosius on Elkhart Lake in Sheboygan County, Wisconsin is subject to Wisconsin statute, Chapter DHS 254.46 Subchapter IV: Recreational Sanitation.
Some athletic therapy facilities are used as a drain and fill (single use) facility and are therefore not regulated by state rules.
The reason for the policy is to minimize the risks associated with water venues including: water-borne illnesses, communicable diseases, chemical injuries and accidents, and other injuries.
Authority for IUB facilities is derived from the administration of the Partnership Agreement between the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) and Indiana University Environmental Health and Safety (UEHS), as established and renewed every two calendar years.
Authority for IUPUI facilities is delegated by the Indiana State Department of Health to the local county health department – Marion County Public Health Department in Indianapolis, IN.
Additional information and detailed procedures regarding this policy should be reviewed in the Water Venues Program information located on the Protect.IU website.Responsibilities for the procedures are as follows:
