Event Details

This event will bring together thought leaders from across the sustainability, public health, water management, water utility and academic communities. Working in collaboration with diverse stakeholders, we can develop systems to prevent illness associated with building water systems while meeting our sustainability goals.

We are pleased to be a key contributor at this year’s conference as a lead presentation. John H. Hanlin, Ecolab VP RD&E - Food Safety, will be presenting "Legionella Risk in the Age of Sustainability:  Does “Green” Mean Clean in Your Premise Plumbing System?". 

More information on the presentation:
Facilities across and the U.S. and around the world are going “green.”  In our buildings today, we’re reducing our energy consumption, water usage, water temperatures and flow rates.  Are there unintended consequences related to Legionnaires’ disease in premise plumbing systems?  The session will cover:

  • A review of the current literature on the potential impact of “green” buildings on Legionnaires’ disease.
  • The impact of changes in water temperature on Legionella growth rates.  
  • Considerations for your water safety program.
