Legionella Water Analysis
Lozier Environmental Consulting, Inc. is certified by NYS ELAP to test for Legionella species in potable and non-potable water sources (ISO 11731). The Protection Against Legionella regulation requires that all Legionella culture analyses be performed by a laboratory approved by the New York State Environmental Laboratory Approval Program (ELAP) to perform such analyses.
Legionella is a type of bacterium found naturally in freshwater environments, like lakes and streams. It can become a health concern when it grows and spreads in human made building water systems like:
Shower heads and sink faucets
Cooling towers (structures that contain water and a fan as part of centralized air- cooling systems for building or industrial processes)
Hot tubs that are not drained after each use
Decorative fountains and water features
Hot water tanks and heaters
Large plumbing systems
People get Legionnaires' disease or Pontiac fever when they breathe in small droplets of water in the air that contain the bacteria, often originating from cooling towers.
If you own or manage any of the above water systems and are looking for quick, reliable Legionella analysis, Lozier would love to work with you and your company at a rate and turnaround time you can't beat.
