The purpose of our recreational health program is to ensure the safe and sanitary operation of public swimming facilities. The West Slope also oversees the food handling and sewage disposal by commercial rafting  outfitters operating on the South Fork of the American River.



The Recreational Health Program is made up of the following programs:

  • Public Pools & Spas (Ensures safe and sanitary operation of public swimming facilities, including pools, spas. and natural bathing places.)
  • Rafting (Ensures safe operation of rafting food service and proper sewage disposal of rafting companies.)
