Council for the Model Aquatic Health Code Certification
HydroWare is a comprehensive software system that enables efficient and effective management of safe and compliant aquatic facilities. The system uses the framework of the CDC’s MAHC to foster an integrated and consistent approach to aquatic facility management while offering the convenience of facilitation from a web browser or mobile device.
Launched in 2018, the CMAHC certification program helps educate the public about products and services that meet the strict, science-based standards in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC). If followed, the guidance in the MAHC helps reduce the risk for disease outbreaks, drownings, and chemical injuries at public aquatic facilities. The CMAHC awards certification to services or products that comply with the relevant or applicable standards in the latest MAHC edition.

“At Hydrology, LLC, we fully support the CDC’s MAHC and are pleased to earn CMAHC Certification for our HydroWare software,” said Janet Gualtieri, co-founder, Hydrology, LLC. “We have integrated many MAHC standards into HydroWare’s functionality to ensure safety, efficiency, effectiveness, and consistency in the design, operation, and maintenance of aquatic facilities.”

CMAHC certification is not a single occurrence. Rather, the intent is to build a long-term quality control partnership. After initial certification, the CMAHC re-evaluates each certified service or product annually to ensure it continues to meet the same high standards required in the MAHC to maintain certification. Services or products that earn a CMAHC certification are said to be “CMAHC certified” and may display the CMAHC certification emblem to demonstrate they have been evaluated for conformance with the requirements in the latest MAHC edition.

The Council for the Model Aquatic Health Code (CMAHC) was created to manage updates to, and promote voluntary adoption of, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC), the only all-inclusive national model pool code. The MAHC is kept sustainable, current, and complete because the people who use it also research, develop, discuss, and vote on proposed changes through membership in the CMAHC. The CMAHC submits proposed changes to CDC as advice on how the MAHC needs to change to
keep up with the latest science and best practices. Throughout the year, CMAHC staff educate
local and state authorities, aquatic facility owners and operators, designers and builders,
manufacturers, and suppliers about the MAHC and its potential to ensure a healthy and safe
swimming experience for everyone. To learn more, visit www.cmahc.org.
