Q: How do I drain my swimming pool at the end of the year?
A:
Under the Ohio EPA’s regulations, dechlorinated swimming pool water should be discharged into the City’s stormwater sewer system. It is illegal to drain chlorinated water into the City’s stormwater system or into any open ditch or watercourse. You can dechlorinate your pool water by resting the water (without adding any chemicals) for 48 hours or more before discharging it into a storm sewer. Pools cannot be drained, directly or indirectly, into any street or onto neighboring property. Please call the Public Works Department at (937) 746-5001 if you have questions.
