Such license shall state the method of disinfection and treatment of the water which shall be used by the owners and operators and the maximum number of persons who will be allowed to use the pool or beach at any one time and during any bathing period. The license shall be posted conspicuously at the pool and may be revoked for cause by the Board of Health for violation of the terms of the N.J.A.C. 8:26-1.1 et seq. and the additional sanitary safeguards prescribed by the Board in granting the license.
