CCA’s team of multi-disciplined experts can help your facility reduce its risk of a Legionnaires’ disease outbreak. Our experts, including doctorate-level health scientists, Certified Industrial Hygienists, and Professional Engineers, will work with your organization to develop a defensible water management program, implement control measures, and respond to or investigate potential Legionella related outbreaks.
Water Management Program (WMP) Development. A written program that identifies hazardous conditions and specific steps to minimize the growth and spread of Legionella in building water systems.
On-Site Survey of Building Water Systems. A physical survey to systematically document building water systems and develop process flow-diagrams in accordance with ASHRAE 188 and U.S. Center for Disease Control guidelines.
Risk Assessment. An analysis to identify hazardous conditions in building water systems and establish control measures and limits to prevent Legionella growth.
Engineering Reviews of Building Water Systems. A detailed review of HVAC, plumbing, and mechanical systems by a Professional Engineer to identify points of stagnation and develop specific engineering solutions for Legionella control.
Legionella Testing. Collection of environmental water samples or biofilm to validate WMP effectiveness or identify source locations. All samples are analyzed by a CDC ELITE certified laboratory.
Legionella Outbreak Response. Owner’s representation and third-party testing/validation during emergency remediation of Legionella in your building’s water system.
Forensic Investigation. Retrospective investigations and litigation support from doctorate-level health scientists, Certified Industrial Hygienists (CIH), and Professional Engineers.
