Why should pools be maintained and what should I do if I know of someone with a pool that is not being maintained?

Maintain your swimming pool with proper chemical treatments and cleaning or drain the water to prevent mosquitoes from breeding and potentially spreading West Nile Virus. Report abandoned and unclean pools to the Code Enforcement Division or to Marin/Sonoma Mosquito and Vector Control, 800-231-3236 (toll-free) and 707-285-2200 (office).
