The summer of 2019 was full of high-profile Legionella Outbreaks. Many made national news and lead to PR nightmares that would cripple any large company. The Mount Carmel Grove City hospital was the focus of at least 16 patients contracting Legionnaires’ Disease from the hospital’s hot water system. The Sheraton Hotel in Atlanta shut down after health authorities confirmed 13 cases, 66 probable cases and 1 death from a Legionella outbreak. The North Carolina state fair has at least 80 Legionnaires’ Disease cases linked to the event.
Yet, there are many outbreaks that never made the local or national news. Why you ask? The trained professional from Innovative Water Consulting were called in to remediate hospitals, hotels, factories, high rise
complexes and more with our patented HydroTreat Remediation Process. These facilities were all testing their facility water systems for Legionella bacteria. When large quantities of the bacteria were found, the property managers and owners of these facilities called us immediately to remediate. Our staff was able to provide an uncharacteristic clean bill of health in all of the facilities we remediated with little to no downtime to business.
Make sure you are routinely testing your building water systems for Legionella bacteria. We make testing for Legionnaires disease bacteria simple, fast and inexpensive. Innovative Water Consulting offers testing plans to fit the needs of your building while also helping to keep you in compliant with the latest mandates.
