Pool Fencing Safety Reminder

Under Fargo city and Cass County ordinances, any swimming pool that is more than two feet deep and has a recirculation system is considered a permanent swimming pool. So even if a pool sits on a lawn and is put away at the end of summer, the permanent pool regulations may still apply. All permanent swimming pools, both in and above ground, must be completely enclosed by a fence or other permanent barrier that is at least five feet high. The fence around a pool should include a gate or door which latches from the inside.
