Managing Building Water Quality to Control Legionella and Other Opportunistic Pathogens: Utility and Building Owners’ Roles

Legionnaire’s Disease is the number one waterborne disease in the US, and the number of people with LD is increasing each year, including in the Province of Ontario. Jurisdictions vary in their regulatory approach to managing opportunistic pathogens and water quality in buildings, and although not yet regulated in Ontario, experience from Quebec, Europe and the US will be of interest to Ontario utilities as they are increasingly faced with questions of water quality on private property. When there is a Legionella outbreak in a health care facility, the source of the outbreak is linked to the building’s water; yet the responsibility of the drinking water system ends at the property line.

This workshop will share information to provide context for this issue, provide updates from researchers on both the technical and communication aspects, introduce the HACCP concept as applied to building water quality, review case studies to describe tools and approaches, and finish with a hands-on exercise to allow attendees to apply what they have learned to their own systems.
