Editor’s Note: Today’s issue of “Wednesday Morning Coffee Talk & Updates” contains this update about an upcoming webinar on the federal government’s pending regulations on lifts for swimming pools and spas. Thanks to the California Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (CalARVC) for this valuable reminder of interest to all park owners who operate swimming pools or spas.

The Department of Justice is announcing free webinars that will provide information and technical assistance addressing the accessible pool entry requirements of the revised 2010 ADA Regulations and the 2010 ADA Standards as they relate to existing pools.

The first webinar will be today (May 2) from 2:30 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. EDT, and it will address the pool access provisions as they apply to the existing pools of public accommodations subject to title III of the ADA.

The second webinar will be May 9 from 2:30 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. EDT, and it will address how the pool access provisions apply to the existing pools of state and local governmental entities subject to title II of the ADA.

Registration is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Each webinar will also be archived and available for rebroadcast on a few days after each event.

Submission of Questions

Questions pertaining to the application of the regulations to existing pools may be submitted in advance of each webinar. There will also be a limited opportunity for registrants to submit questions during each webinar. Please note: The department is unable to entertain any questions about its pending rulemaking.

To learn more about the ADA you may call the Justice Department’s toll-free ADA information Line at (800) 514-0301 or (800) 514-0383 (TDD), or access the ADA website at

    We operate a small RV park and would like to put in a pool but now have scrapped the idea because of the extra cost of this kind of stuff.
