Virginia Graeme Baker Pool & Spa Safety Act

President Bush signed the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool & Spa Safety Act into law on December 19, 2007. The law mandates all public pools meet federal guidelines for entrapment protection for their main drains.

The law addresses standards for main drain cover manufacture, standards for single main drain pools, and standards for pools with more than one main drain or with unblockable main drains. The state's website offers guidance for public pool operators, service companies, and others to comply with the law while coordinating with existing Oregon rules.
