Change of ownership

Operating permits are non-transferrable in the state of Washington.

If your facility has gone through a change of ownership, please complete and submit a Change of Ownership Application to ensure your pool, spa and/or recreational water feature (e.g. splash pad, interactive fountain) can remain open to the public.

How to submit for review

  • Online: For more information about applying through our online permitting portal, please email the recreational water program staff. 
  • In person: Please note that in person submissions are currently not being accepted due to the COVID-19 safety precautions in place. Check back here for updates. 
  • By mail: Application materials, plans and payment can be submitted by mail at PO Box 9825 Vancouver, WA 98666.
