Legionella Treatment Remediation

Legionella treatment and remediation is a process used to remove Legionella bacteria from water systems. This process can be done by using chlorine or other chemicals to kill the bacteria, or by physically removing the bacteria from the water system.

Legionnaires’ disease is a severe form of pneumonia that can be fatal. The illness is most commonly seen in people over the age of 50, and those with weakened immune systems.

Removing Legionella Bacteria

There are a number of methods for eliminating Legionella bacteria and preventing it from happening in the first place. It’s possible that you’ll need to make some modifications to your water system, such as replacing a dead leg.

In many situations, professional cleaning and disinfection is the best option. The two most popular methods for disinfecting water services are:

  • Thermal disinfection – Boosting the temperature of your hot water system. Legionella organisms cannot survive in higher temperatures. Next, we would draw the hotter water through to every outlet. We would then let the water flush out at a slow rate for a set period of time.
  • Chemical disinfection – is the process of adding an effective cleansing agent, such as chlorine, to your water system. This substance is then drawn through every outlet in your house and left there for a set period of time before each outlet is closed again.

What is Legionella Bacteria?

Legionella bacteria is a naturally occurring microscopic single-celled organism. Legionella bacteria are widespread and found in natural water systems such as streams, rivers, reservoirs, lakes and ponds however they are usually in low numbers.  Since legionella can be found within the natural environment it may contaminate and multiple in purpose-built water systems. These bacteria thrive in warm temperatures and low oxygen levels. It is this legionella bacteria found in the water which is the cause of Legionnaires disease.

Where is there a risk from Legionella?

There is a potential risk of legionella within any water system that has the right conditions which could be a source of legionella growth. There is a potential legionella risk in a water system when:

  • Water is stored or re-circulated
  • Water temperature is between 20–45 °C
  • Rust, sludge, scale and organic matters are present
  • Conditions are right to encourage bacteria to multiply
  • Water droplets can be produced and dispersed (e.g showers, areosols etc)
  • Employees, residents, visitors etc are more susceptible to infection due to age, illness, a weakened immune system who could be exposed to any contaminated water droplets.

What types of systems can be included in legionella treatment remediation works

Legionella treatment remediation works can be undertaken on any where water is used or stored; and where there is a means of creating and transmitting water droplets (aerosols) which may be inhaled, causing a reasonably foreseeable risk of exposure to legionella.

The following locations may require legionella treatment remediation works:

  • Cooling systems with cooling towers
  • Evaporative condensers
  • Dry/wet cooling systems
  • Hot and cold water systems
  • Spa pools
  • Other plant and systems containing water that can create and increase the risk from legionella during operation or when being maintained

Who can do a legionella risk assessment? 

A legionella risk assessment should inspect locations where water is used or stored; and where there is a means of creating and transmitting water droplets (aerosols) which may be inhaled, causing a reasonably foreseeable risk of exposure to legionella.

The following locations should be included where present:

  • Cooling systems with cooling towers
  • Evaporative condensers
  • Dry/wet cooling systems
  • Hot and cold water systems
  • Spa pools
  • Other plant and systems containing water that can create and increase the risk from legionella during operation or when being maintained

Where can Legionella bacteria grow?

Legionella bacteria reside within water bodies including lakes, water sources, and rivers. Alternatively, the substances are found within natural water systems, such as heat pumps and cooler towers and spas.

Given the correct combinations of environmental factors, a water supply can be a breeding ground for Legionella growth. Legionella bacteria may cause significant health problems if stored and recirculated water and breathable water droplets can spread to the surface of the aerosol.
