Everything you need to know about Legionella Remedial Works

What is Legionella?

Legionella is a pathogenic bacterium that can cause the potentially fatal condition Legionnaires disease. While the bacteria naturally occur at low concentrations in aquatic environments likes lakes, ponds, and rivers, it becomes a problem when it enters engineered water systems. Left untreated it can multiply. When water droplets become contaminated with the bacteria and are inhaled into the lungs, humans can contract Legionnaires disease.

Systems that are commonly associated with Legionella contamination include cooling towers, air-conditioning systems and domestic hot and cold-water systems. The systems need to be risk assessed and a control programme established to reduce any identified risk
