Legionella is a bacterium that grows and lives in certain water. While it is found naturally in lakes and streams, Legionella often becomes a big threat when it grows and spreads to man-made plumbing systems like commercial cooling towers. If your water system is left untreated, Legionella can begin to harm employees and other people – leading to life-threatening illnesses like Legionnaires’ disease.
Legionnaires’ disease is a form of pneumonia, and it is spread through droplets in the air that are small enough for a person to breathe in. The best and only way to treat Legionella (and prevent the disease) is to maintain a clean and sanitized water system.
