The ultimate goal of a Water Management Program is to control the growth and survival of waterborne pathogens such as Legionella, and to control epidemic in the facility.
The first component of a Water Management Program should be the design and execution of the Water Safety Plan. The Water Safety Plan should be not only specific to your facility, but also contain clearly documented control practices and action plans to demonstrate diligence. Most importantly, the Water Safety Plan must be designed in a manner that can be easily implemented and be effective at managing the potential for pathogenic bacteria such as Legionella.
Precept specializes in helping our customers develop, implement, and document all aspects of an ongoing Water Safety Plan that is customized for each facility. Our Water Safety Plan exceeds the criteria of the ASHRAE Standard 188, “Prevention of Legionellosis Associated with Building Water Systems”, and also helps to meet expectations of other governing authorities such as CMS, Departments of Public Health, The Joint Commission and DNV,
With every implementation of a Water Management Program, a Precept Environmental Advisor will be assigned and dedicated to support facility management with the program. The Advisor will help ensure the continued success of the program over time with routine Program Verification and Analytical Validation. The Verification and Validation process may include compliance audits, analytical sampling, minor program adjustments, and documentation of major program achievements. This will keep the Program current and up to date with the constantly-changing industry and requirements.
