  • To protect your organization’s image, revenue and brand.
  • To be a good corporate citizen.
  • To comply with national and local laws and guidelines.



What Are The Elements of a Water Management Plan?


In response, healthcare facilities should create WMPs and ensure that the following elements of water management are implemented:

1. Establish a water management program team to comply with ASHRAE standard 188 and CDC kit.

2. Describe building water systems using text and flow diagrams.

3. Identify at-risk populations.

4. Identify areas, equipment, and systems at risk where Legionella could grow and spread.

5. Assign responsibility to implement risk mitigating strategies.

6. Establish actions to monitor the strategy parameters.

7. Decide where control measures should be applied and how to monitor them.

8. Establish interventions when control limits are not met.
