Every year around 1,630 people in France fall ill with Legionnaire's disease, which is caused by Legionella. People come into contact with these bacteria not only via drinking water installations. These rod bacteria can also become a health hazard in process water, wastewater and in the cooling water of evaporative cooling systems.
The experts of WESSLING support operators of water installations and other facilities - for the health of tenants, customers and employees.
The Drinking Water Ordinance and the EU Drinking Water Directive define that water must be easily digestible and available to humans at all times. To achieve this, operators of systems for continuous water distribution with a large system for DHW heating are obliged to carry out a Legionella test at least every three years.
Legionella pose the greatest health hazard to humans in drinking water. Therefore, large plants are subject to a duty of disclosure. However, care must also be taken in relation to other types of water. Several cases in recent years have shown that circulation water contaminated by Legionella in cooling towers and evaporative cooling systems can be the cause of infections. Some of the diseases can be fatal.
