Does My Senior Community Need A Water Management Program?
People who are 50 years or older are at increased risk for developing Legionnaires’ Disease. Outbreaks of LD within Senior Living Communities cause severe illness, death and costly lawsuits with large settlements. Senior Living properties are specifically classified as high risk in ASHRAE 188, the industry standard for Legionella risk management within building water systems.
Residents of Senior Living Communities are at a higher risk for developing Legionnaires’ Disease because of their age. To minimize risk, it is crucial that these communities have Water Management Programs in place. IWC was founded specifically to help your organization navigate this complicated issue and keep you in compliance with our defensible water management plans.
