THE LEGIONNAIRES PROBLEM
Legionnaires’ disease is a severe infection that can be very serious and can cause death.
People get Legionnaires’ disease when they breathe in a mist or vapour (small droplets of water in the air) that has been contaminated with the bacteria.
The Legionella bacteria are found naturally in the environment, usually in spring waters (even thermals), in the rivers, in the lakes and in the sea. The bacteria grow best in warm water, like the kind found in hot tubs, hot water tanks, and large plumbing systems.
Legionella can be found in Hotels, Hospitals, Nursing home, Thermal, Sport centres, swimming pools, fountains, even in golf fields.
Legionella grow also in cooling towers or parts of the air-conditioning systems of large buildings.
