MAHC Vision and Mission


The Model Aquatic Health Code’s (MAHC) vision is “Healthy and Safe Aquatic Experiences for Everyone”. The MAHC’s mission is to incorporate science and best practices into guidance on how state and local officials can transform a typical health department pool program into a data-driven, knowledge-based, risk reduction effort to prevent disease and injuries and promote healthy recreational water experiences. The MAHC will provide local and state agencies with uniform guidelines and wording for the areas of design and construction, operation and maintenance, and policies and management of swimming POOLS, SPAS and other public disinfected AQUATIC FACILITIES.
