|Descrizione||Cooling Tower Water Treatment Test Kit Complies with NY Legionella Law
Owners of cooling towers in New York City will probably need to start testing their cooling tower water treatment chemicals on a daily basis if the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene has something to say about it. And they certainly do have something to say about it...
On November 20th, 2015, the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene filed a proposed resolution to add a new Chapter 8 to Title 24 of the Rules of the City of New York which would establish ongoing rules for cooling towers maintenance to prevent contamination from legionella bacteria. The presumption is that the requirements outlined in the DOHMH’s proposed Chapter 8 would be incorporated into the mandatory Maintenance Program and Plan, which is required to be in place by March 1st, 2016. A public hearing was held to discuss the terms of this resolution on January 4th, 2016 and the DOHMH’s draft resolution was open to public commentary.
At the time of this post, Title 24 of the Rules of the City of New York do not yet reflect the proposed changes to Chapter 8, however, it would not be unreasonable for a cooling tower owner to incorporate these rules into their Cooling Tower Maintenance Program and Plan or Water Management Plan (WMP) immediately. Especially since, the DOHMH has told recently us that the final rules will be substantively the same as those published for comment, with only a few changes.Regardless of whether or not the DOHMH’s proposed Title 24 Chapter 8 to the Rules of the City of New York is adopted exactly as proposed, cooling tower owners are still required annually certify with the DOHMH that their cooling towers have been inspected, tested, cleaned and disinfected in compliance with Local Law 77. So in addition to having your Maintenance Program and Plan in place by March 1st, 2016, you may also want to contemplate adopting some of the procedures outlined in the DOHMH’s proposed Title 24 Chapter 8 to the Rules of the City of New York. Namely, the daily, weekly, quarterly and yearly testing, inspection and recording schedule.http://www.irowater.com
