Legionella is probably present in all natural water sources. Given the right environment it can become a serious risk to health and in some cases can prove fatal. If not properly controlled Legionella will spread rapidly over a wide area. The penalties for non-compliance with current Health & Safety guidelines are severe as is the damage to the reputation of the organisation affected.
The required level of monitoring will depend on the plant and water services on the site. Tough Water Solutions design programmes for the management of the legionella risk. This would generally include cleaning and disinfecting, regular monitoring of the water temperature, inspections of cold water tanks and reviews of the management programme.
