From Engineering Design to Water Quality Compliance of Domestic Services

Even though Legionnaires’ disease outbreaks are infrequent (circa 8 to a million in the UK) they are potentially life threatening, which may be avoidable through sound engineering design and operational side maintenance and management. One of the engineering key considerations for this presentation is to explore the methodology and design of domestic water systems through to operational side water quality compliance. This includes consideration to whether the risk may be prevented and what action is necessary to manage the risk with control measures.
