Swimming Pool Notice

Did you get a swimming pool notice on your door?

Unmaintained swimming pools are the top mosquito-producing sources in residential areas of Kern and Tulare Counties. If left unmaintained, a single swimming pool can produce thousands of mosquitoes in a short period of one week and can become a public health risk. The District surveys for green, unmaintained swimming pools two times during the mosquito season (March - November) to reduce the mosquito abundance and disease transmission risk.

I received a swimming pool notice but my swimming pool is CLEAN or COMPLETELY DRY. What should I do?

Our system is not flawless and sometimes pick up pebble tec pools, pool covers, shade, and/or objects mistaken as dirty pools.

You can confirm the condition of your pool by uploading a picture below.


May contain: backyard, nature, outdoors, yard, pool, water, swimming pool, and garden
Clean functional pool
May contain: pool, water, and tub
Completely dry pool.
*Although it will not breed mosquito larvae, a completely dry swimming pool is prone to costly structural damage. The District, in no way recommends that anyone empty their pool and encourages residents to research the negative impact of removing the water before doing so.












May contain: green swimming pool, algae and plant
Unmaintained  green swimming pools  (both in ground and above ground) can breed thousands of mosquitoes.

Swimming pools with any amount of water at the deep end (from rain or unpumped water) can still breed thousands of mosquitoes.













If you have a green swimming pool, please contact the District through our pool submission page or phone number to set up a FREE inspection and treatment of your swimming pool.


The photo of your pool must include the current notice in the foreground and must be clean and functional or completely emptied. See the example below.
