Legionellosis: Risk Management for Building Water Systems

The American Society of Heating and Refrigeration Engineers (ASHRAE) has released another addendum to its Standard 188-2015, Legionellosis: Risk Management for Building Water Systems (click here).   Many ASHRAE consensus documents — especially in fast-moving technological spaces that involve public safety — evolve on a continuous basis with public review periods running in 30 to 45 day intervals.   The legionella hazard requires speed in leading practice discovery and establishment of a standard of care.  

Now comes Addendum a which proposes a revision to the definition of “non-potable” and “potable water system”.  The revision defines “non-potable” with the opposite language used to define “potable water system,” and the revisions makes the definition consistent with the same definitions proposed in ASHRAE Guideline 12.   The addendum in its entirety is available at the link below:

ASHRAE Public Review Draft Standards

Comments are due October 21st.    You may comment directly on the ASHRAE Online Standards Actions & Public Review Drafts web page with copy to psa@ansi.org.  We will coordinate our comments with user interests in the education industry any day at 11 AM EDT.  We also host monthly teleconference focused only on mechanical engineering issues.  The next online meeting — accessible with the login credentials at the upper right of our homepage — is scheduled for October 15th, 11 AM EDT.
