Legionella in Commercial Buildings
According to the US Energy Information Administration, there are nearly 6 million commercial buildings in the United States with about 100 billion square feet of floorspace.
Tenant-made changes to plumbing systems, such as the addition of showers, can disrupt water distribution and usage patterns, resulting in conditions that support microbial growth. Microbial growth can lead to outbreaks of waterborne diseases, such as Legionnaires’ disease. Inconsistent water usage owing to variations in occupancy also can result in conditions that support microbial growth.
