Operating a Swimming or Bathing Beach Facility in Will County, Illinois

 A dive into your local swimming pool or beach is the perfect way to cool off on a hot summer’s day. Swimming in fact is one of the best forms of exercise for adults and children all-year around. After receiving a license from the IDPH, all those wishing to operate a swimming or bathing beach facility in the county must file an application with the WCHD that includes the appropriate annual inspection fee. The fee schedule is included in both the ordinance and the application.
