COVID-19: SAFEGUARDING YOU AND YOUR WATER SUPPLY, FROM RE-OPENINGS TO REGULAR OPERATIONS

COVID-19 means new risks to water safety. Whether your organization has continued with uninterrupted daily operations, or you’ve had to adjust to building shutdowns or delayed construction, your water safety needs to be a top priority during COVID-19 and as we recover.

Storage tanks, drinking foundations, cooling towers and shower heads can all harbor Legionella

Time to Re-open?

If you’re bringing an entire building or part of your building back on-line after a shutdown for any reason – including the pandemic – you need to know the risk for Legionella and other waterborne pathogens is higher because the water in your lines has been stagnant for days, weeks, or even months.

Keeping You Safe

When performing on-site CDC environmental assessments, we protect our customers by monitoring the health of our staff, and our technicians wear proper PPE and masks when out in the field.

Is Your Facility at Higher Risk?

Some buildings face higher risk for Legionella and other waterborne pathogens during a shutdown. Is yours one of them?

“We’re here to help you safeguard your building’s water from pathogens, whether it’s currently vacant or seeing minimal use, so you can be confident in welcoming back employees and customers.” — Lois Elrich, President, Solid Blend

STEPS TO AVOID WATER STAGNATION

  1. Routinely flush your water systems.
  2. Keep hot water hot and cold water cold. Safe water temperatures prevent waterborne pathogens from growing and leaching from contaminants such as lead and copper.
  3. Monitor temperature, disinfectant levels, and microbiological analysis.
  4. If none of the above are possible, recommission your water systems following AWWA disinfection standards as if they were newly constructed or being recommissioned after being dormant, before the building is reoccupied at normal occupancy levels and the water systems return to use.
  5. Create a Water Management Plan, and be sure to address water stagnation.
  6. Document all activities.
