Abstract: Water samples collected from 100 public swimming pools in the West Bank of the Palestine by health inspectors. The samples were tested for microbiological quality for the years 2003, 2004 and 2005. The overall of unaccepted tested swimming pool water samples were as follows: 35.8% for total Coliforms (TC), 24.4% for faecal Coliforms (FC), 36% for Heterotrophic Plate Count (HPC), 39.3% Enterococci (Ente), and 28% for P. aeruginosa (Pa), 24.3% for Staphylococcus aureus (Sa), and 6.7% for Salmonella (Sal). Therefore, it is necessary to allocate more attention to swimming pool monitoring and evaluation studies to prevent pollution of the swimming water.
