(A) The director of health shall annually survey each health district that licenses public swimming pools, public spas, and special-use pools to determine whether or not the health district is in substantial compliance with this chapter and the rules adopted thereunder. If the director determines that a health district is in substantial compliance, he shall place the district on an approved health district licensing list. The director shall, as he determines necessary, make additional surveys of health districts and shall remove from the approved health district licensing list any health district he determines not to be in substantial compliance with this chapter and the rules adopted thereunder.
(B) If the director determines that a health district is not eligible to be placed on the approved health district licensing list, he shall certify the same to the board of health of the health district and shall perform the duties of a health district in that area until the health district is eligible for placement on the approved list. All fees payable to the health district during the time that the director performs the duties of the health district and all other such fees that have not been expended or otherwise encumbered shall be deposited by the director in the state treasury to the credit of the general operations fund created by section 3701.83 of the Revised Code, to be used by the director in his capacity as a licensor. The director shall keep a record of the fees so deposited and, when the health district is placed on the approved list, shall transfer any remaining balance of the fees to the health district swimming pool fund created under division (E) of section 3749.04 of the Revised Code.
