Legionella Risk Management and Remediation Services

The Best Legionella Risk Management Service in NY, NJ, CT and PAClarity Water Technologies offers a full range of services designed to minimize the risks and liabilities associated with legionella in your facility.  Legionella is the bacteria that causes Legionnaires’ Disease, a potentially fatal form of pneumonia. It lives and grows naturally in water and soil.  In buildings, it thrives in warm water systems like cooling towers, decorative fountains, hot tubs, whirlpools, and hot potable water systems.

A legionella outbreak could be potentially catastrophic in facilities that are occupied by people with compromised, underdeveloped or suppressed immune systems – the very young, the elderly and those who may already be ill.  This means that hospitals and elder care facilities should be extremely vigilant about mitigating the risks associated with legionella because those facilities are most at risk; however, any facility that has a warm water system that is used by or is in close proximity to people should have a plan for minimizing legionella.  This includes hotels, schools, office buildings, large apartment complexes and manufacturing facilities.

At Clarity Water Technologies we set ourselves apart from our competition in this field by offering our 360 Degree Service – a complete program that not only assesses risk and develops a custom tailored management plan, but also includes a full service prevention and remediation component, including emergency cooling tower disinfection services. To put it simply: we don’t just consult – we implement your plan, administer your water treatment program and offer emergency response if there is ever an issue.

The three distinct areas of our 360 Degree Legionella Management Service are:

    • The Legionella Risk Assessment & Management Plan – which includes a comprehensive summary of all of your water systems and a protocol for keeping them free of all waterborne pathogens including legionella.  While our approach in pays homage to the “Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP)” strategy developed in the 1990s by the US food industry, we go a step farther and take additional steps that are recommended by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Cooling Technology Institute (CTI), the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) – including ASHRAE’s Standard 188. Standard 188 – Legionellosis: Risk Management for Building Water Systems will establish minimum legionellosis risk management requirements for building water systems and is now in its final round of revisions.
