Legionella Treatment and Water Management Plan
A water management plan is a customized plan engineered by water treatment professionals to ensure that water consistently meets certain standards and stays up to date with changing regulations. Not all facilities are strictly regulated, but a water management plan is still recommended to reduce liability. In accordance with the new ASHRAE Standard 188, and with more and more local and national requirements, many facilities are requiring water treatment plans that protect against Legionella. FCT Water offers water management plans to reduce the risk of Legionella and Legionnaires Disease from water so that facilities remain compliant with new regulations. Our experts can formulate a plan for your specific facility and work with you to make sure it fits into your operations.

Cleaner, Better Water
Water can be a breeding ground for problems – scale, corrosion, and even biological growth, just to name a few – but a water management plan can help reduce risks associated with untreated or un-managed water.
Leaving water untreated or improperly treated can be a huge risk to any business. Water can be a breeding ground for a multitude of problems, including the spread of diseases. By creating a management program you take back control and reduce unnecessary liability risks that could cost you in the long run.
Keep up With the Standards
The guidelines and standards surrounding water management are constantly changing and often require new or different methods of treatment. A management plan from FCT Water is tailored to suit your needs and is kept current with evolving standards and requirements.
FCT Water Specialists can perform on-site testing across a facility to determine the exact risks and needs of water in different areas of the system. This comprehensive report can be useful in determining what actions may need to be taken in order to prevent or remediate certain issues within the water.
Prevention is the proactive approach to water treatment. Water experts implement techniques or treatments that actively target issues that your water may be susceptible to, and help prevent them from occurring.
Found something in your water that shouldn’t be there? Remediation is any service that corrects issues found in the water.
The Bottom Line
The CDC Vital Signs Report and ASHRAE Standard 188 offer new standards regarding water system maintenance and the dangers of Legionella in complex water systems. As these new standards become more widely accepted and even required by many facilities across the United States, it is in the best interest of facilities with such systems to develop water management plans and procedures if they haven’t done so already. The only real way to prevent Legionella and other major issues associated with un-managed water is with effective water treatment. If you believe that your facility might be at risk, please feel free to contact FCT Water to discuss what steps you may need to take to apply an effective water management plan.
