Whenever any permanent or portable pool becomes, in the opinion of the Health Officer, a menace or hazard to the health or welfare of its users or the public by reason of mechanical defects, unsatisfactory conditions, improper water discharge, failure to comply with this chapter or by becoming a nuisance, he is hereby authorized to summarily close such pool and, in case of permanent pools, to revoke the permit.
Upon the closing of a pool pursuant to § 238-19, the Health Officer shall post upon the pool or upon some object in close proximity thereto a notice reading as follows:
Any removal of the notice given, as provided by § 238-20, or the use of a pool when so closed shall constitute a violation of this chapter and subject the person so doing to penalties as provided herein.
The owner of any pool closed under the provisions of this chapter may appeal to the Board of Health, which shall forthwith hold a hearing on the appeal upon notice to all parties in interest. The Board may either affirm, modify or reverse the action of the Health Officer. The pendency of the appeal however shall not stay the closure order.
The Health Officer may, upon being satisfied that conditions have been remedied, upon proper application and after reinspection, restore the permit and rescind the closure order.
During all times when a period of emergency water shortage is proclaimed by the Mayor, no person shall run any water whatsoever into any pool of any kind within the Borough, and no owner of any pool shall suffer, allow or permit any water to be run into his pool during such a period.
No period of emergency water shortage shall be deemed to be ended until so proclaimed by the Mayor.
