What regulations apply to swimming pools?
All swimming pools require a Building Permit. For all pools with water depths of 24 inches or more, State Building Code requires they be enclosed by a 48-inch high fence with self-closing gates. An above-ground pool with walls over 48 inches above the adjacent ground level does not require a fence, but must have a removable ladder. Call the Building Department at 845-279-2123 for fence specifications.
