The ASHRAE 188 is the ANSI/ASHRAE Standard. “Legionella Risk Management for building Water Systems”. This standard was developed to be an outline for the care and remediation for legionella in every water system in a building. It was designed as a standard, not as a law. It was supposed to be a collaboration between:
- Water Treatment Experts
- HUAC Maintenance Personel
Today the New York State and New York City focus the law on sections 5,6,7-2 (dealing with cooling towers only).
