Course Description

Within the last several years, federal and state public health organizations have introduced new or enhanced guidance and recommendations regarding building water quality, in large part due to the reopening of buildings that have had lower or no use during the pandemic. Stagnant water can have a significant impact on water quality, including the accumulation of contaminants like lead and growth of waterborne pathogens. If microorganisms are able to proliferate within water systems and components (i.e. hot water heaters, cooling towers) there is a greater potential for exposure to pathogenic bacteria leading to illness and, in some cases, death. The emotional, financial, and legal impact of these exposures can last for years and consume a considerable amount of resources.

This course reviews water quality risks related to Legionella and other waterborne pathogens, as well as current public health and regulatory agency guidance for building water systems. It also provides an overview of practical measures—such as developing a water management program, conducting a site risk assessment, and using supplementary treatment techniques and validation sampling—that can be taken to prevent problems from occurring.

Learning objectives:

  • Recognize the risks associated with prolonged closure in building water systems
  • Understand the current guidance and industry best-practices regarding Legionella building water systems
  • Learn how a water management program is developed and implemented
