In November of 2015, NY followed NYC and developed their own set of regulations, although similar to NYC. These regulations are NYState interpretation of ASHRAE 188 for cooling towers. Though slightly less strict and slightly easier to comply with, the same basic elements of inspections, legionella testing, water management plans verification and certification exist.
NYS requires updating to their portal, with all compliance information every 90 days.
We have been told that regular visits are coming from the NYSDOH, however at this time we know of none being conducted outside of an outbreak situation.
