Topic of Discussion

 

New Standard ASHRAE 188:

Chlorine Dioxide Disinfection for

Legionellae Prevention in Building Water Systems

ASHRAE’s new Legionella standard, ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 188-2015, Legionellosis: Risk Management for Building Water Systems specifies the essential components of a water management plan. To comply with the standard, building operators must implement a water management plan for cooling towers and other water systems that can harbor and transmit Legionella bacteria. HVAC contractors can play a role in the implementation of a water management plan by providing services related to cooling tower cleaning and maintenance.

 

Legionellosis: Key Facts*

An estimated 8,000 to 18,000 people are hospitalized with Legionellosis each year in the U.S., and up to 30 percent of those cases prove to be fatal.

More than 90 percent of all cases go undetected, often misdiagnosed as common pneumonia, but with a mortality rate also thought to be in the 30 percent range.

80 percent of all cases are traced to potable water systems; 23 percent are hospital-acquired, and 77 percent are acquired in such settings as hotels, commercial and educational facilities, and industrial plants.
