Nev. Admin. Code § 444.278 - Capacity

1. For the purpose of determining the capacity of any pool in a public bathing or swimming facility, those portions of the pool less than 5 feet (1.52 meters) deep or from the breakpoint to the shallow end is designated as the "nonswimming" area and the portion of the pool more than 5 feet (1.52 meters) deep or from the breakpoint to the deep end is designated as the "swimming" area.
2. The maximum number of bathers permitted within the pool enclosure at one time must be based on the following formula:

Maximum Bathing Load = Nonswimming Area (ft.2) 10 + Swimming Area (ft.2) 24
3. The health authority may make additional allowance in cases of facilities with extensive deck areas used by patrons for lounging or sunbathing.
4. The maximum number of bathers permitted within the pool enclosure must be posted at each facility. The number must be based on the area of the facility or on the sanitary facilities which are provided. The most restrictive regulation applies.
5. The owner of the facility is responsible for seeing that the maximum capacity is not exceeded.
