Your reputation, and that of your organization, can be seriously harmed by a report that Legionella has been reported in your facility. Worse, someone, might get seriously ill and die as a result of exposure. Legionella rates of serious disease are rising exponentially in the US . Nobody knows for certain why this is the case. Even if you don’t run a nursing home or a medical facility, avoiding the reputational risk, may be well worth the cost of implementing a water management plan that includes periodic testing. Not only that, but you’re also doing the right thing by yourself and people that depend on you to keep tenants and investors safe.
