EHO CDR Jasen Kunz was instrumental in coordinating the completion of the CDC's Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC).  CDR Kunz worked on behalf of the CDC's National Center for Environmental Health to lead various steering and technical committees consisting of 140 individuals towards the completion of teh MAHC.

The Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC) is a voluntary guidance document based on science and best practices that can help local and state authorities make swimming and other water activities healthier and safer. States and localities can use the MAHC to create or update existing pool codes to reduce risk for outbreaks, drowning, and pool-chemical injuries. The MAHC guidelines address the design, construction, operation, maintenance, policies, and management of public aquatic facilities.
