Assembly Bill
No. 1161


Introduced by Assembly Member Calderon Members Calderon and Salas

February 21, 2019


An act to add Article 2.8 (commencing with Section 115960) 115960.1) to Chapter 5 of Part 10 of Division 104 of the Health and Safety Code, relating to public health.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1161, as amended, Calderon. Recreational water use: wave basins.
Existing law provides for the regulation of recreational water use, as specified, including, but not limited to, swimming pools and wave pools. Existing law establishes applicable construction and sanitation standards for public swimming pools, as well as standards pertaining to their operation, maintenance, and use. Existing law exempts an artificially constructed swimming facility in excess of 20,000 square feet of surface area, as specified, from the construction standards and related regulations, but specifies that the standards and regulations relating to operation, maintenance, and use do apply to those facilities. A violation of the provisions relating to public swimming pools is a misdemeanor.
This bill would additionally establish standards for the operation of a wave basin, defined as a constructed body of water with a wave generation system used for surfing-related activities, constructed with an impermeable surface, with more than 100,000 square feet of surface area, and that meets other specified criteria. By making a wave basin subject to existing water quality laws and regulations relating to public swimming pools, the bill would expand the definition of a crime, thus creating a state-mandated local program. The bill would also require a wave basin to be operated in accordance with a water safety program that complies with the most current life safety guidelines appropriate for surfing-related activities from the American Red Cross or other applicable certifying entity. similarly establish, under the supervision of the State Department of Public Health, standards for a wave basin, defined as an artificially constructed body of water within an impervious water containment structure incorporating the use of a mechanical device for generating waves with suitable characteristics for surfing. The bill would require a wave basin to be under the supervision of a wave basin operator, with specified responsibilities, and be subject to inspection by the enforcing agent, as defined. The bill would establish standards for the construction, use, operation, and maintenance of wave basins, including, but not limited to, standards for recordkeeping; water treatment, clarity, and characteristics; lifeguard service, first aid, and safety; and employee and wave basin user health. The bill would make a person who violates any of its provisions, or related building standards, rules, and regulations, guilty of a misdemeanor, punishable by a fine, imprisonment, or by both a fine and imprisonment. By creating a new crime, and by imposing new inspection duties on local public health enforcing agents, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.

The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.

This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.

The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that with regard to certain mandates no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.
With regard to any other mandates, this bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs so mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.
