The complainant <br />was concerned that the pond was large enough that a potential drowning could occur if a <br />child were to inadvertently stumble into it. <br />Staff investigated the complaint and concluded that the pond is in violation of the <br />swimming pool code since it has a surface area in excess of 50 sf and does not have the <br />required barrier (6' non -climbable fence). If the pond was 50 sf or less it would not be <br />considered a pool and would not require a barrier. <br />At the time the pond was built, the code did not address landscape features. The applicant <br />states he contacted the city and was told he needed no permit and could install the pond. <br />The applicant stated the original pond was much smaller, but since his child fell in, he <br />created a barrier of boulders and extended the width to allow for a 1-11/z' deep edge as an <br />additional safety feature. <br />
