Legionella occurrence and risk

By the Environmental Protection Agency

Premise plumbing systems have been identified as a source of legionella infection (Stout et al., 1992; Muder et al., 1986). Within healthcare facilities such as hospitals and nursing homes, potable water supply is the most common source of exposure (Lin et al., 2011a). Exposure to legionellae has also been associated with other types of premise plumbing systems (such as hotels and other buildings with complex water distribution systems) (Silk et al., 2012; Hung et al., 1993; Tobin et al., 1981a and 1981b).
