For more information on Public Swimming Pools

The Public Swimming Pool and Bathing Facility Program ensures healthy conditions and safety at regulated facilities throughout Kentucky by reviewing plans and conducting inspections during the construction and renovation process.  All new construction and any renovations to existing facilities must be reviewed and approved by program staff prior to beginning construction activities.


The Environmental Public Health Tracking (EPHT) Program at the Kentucky Department for Public Health provides information and data about how the environment affects human health. Use this website to answer questions about air quality, drinking water, cancer, and a wide variety of other topics.

Environmental Lead Program

The Environmental Lead Program oversees the lead-based paint hazard detection and abatement industry to ensure that lead-based paint hazards are safely found and removed from homes and child-occupied facilities in order to protect the health of the occupants, especially young children.

Methamphetamine Guidance Documents

Regulations require the posting and cleanup of dwellings contaminated by the production of methamphetamines.  Local health departments have some responsibilities for the posting and must coordinate with state and local law enforcement, as well as the Energy and Environment Cabinet's Division of Waste Management, to ensure that anyone entering contaminated property is warned of the potential dangers inside.
