Alignment with Industry Guidance
Ensuring your water management program (WMP) is in alignment with industry guidance can be a confusing and overwhelming task. Regulations, standards, and laws are always evolving and it is important to understand what your facility water management team (WMT) needs to do to mitigate risk of waterborne pathogens, including Legionella, and to protect the safety of building occupants. Defensible WMPs are built by teams that are empowered with the right support and tools to efficiently and effectively collaborate, document, verify and validate. Through data collection and management, comprehensive and defensible WMPs allow building owners to make proactive, evidence-based decisions for facility water safety.
