What are the regulations for swimming pools?

Pools require a permit. They must be located at least 8 feet from any property line and not less than 8 feet from any building on the lot. Additional considerations must be made for overhead electrical service and any underground utilities. Pools that are 24 inches in depth or more are required to be enclosed by a 4 foot high fence and must have a lockable gate/access.
