Legionella may be growing in biofilms and biomasses in your water systems. Cooling towers, water fountains, and other sources of water cause droplets from this water to become airborne. Inhaling a drop of water/mist that contains Legionella may cause Legionnaires Disease. Testing for Legionella is the first step in preventing an outbreak of Legionnaires Disease. Our CDC Elite testing facility analyzes water samples for the Legionella bacterium.
IWS can provide comprehensive Legionella Programming for your facility; including testing, monitoring, and treating your systems to control the Legionella bacterium.
