Water Management Plans
Our Water Management Plans and preventative actions comply with the guidelines and directives established by government agencies such as the CDC, VA, and Department of Defense. They are also fully compliant with the standards set forth by ASHRAE Standard 188 and The Joint Commission.
An Overview of LiquiTech Water Management Programs
LiquiTech water management plans (WMPs) help identify potential health hazards and inefficiencies in water systems that can contribute to unnecessary spread of disease, pose a significant threat to life safety, and hurt the facility’s bottom line. In creating a Legionella management plan, we map and document the critical control points unique to each facility, while documenting corrective actions and validating results.

Frequently Asked Questions:
A Water Management Plan helps to identify the critical areas of concern within a facility’s water systems that can promote or harbor Legionella bacterial growth. The plan includes forming an accountable team, mapping the water systems, identifying critical control points, establishing monitoring procedures and identifying corrective actions to be taken if control criteria are not met.
ASHRAE Standard 188P has placed a legal imperative on facility owners, operators and designers. The intent of the standard is to facilitate awareness of and testing for Legionella to prevent a proven public health threat. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has endorsed the standard and gone beyond, to advocate regular testing in many cases. A Legionella prevention plan identifies all areas of potential risk for Legionella growth within a facility and will help to establish monitoring, control, and corrective action procedures to eliminate the likelihood of Legionella growth.
First, you need to establish the team that will execute these procedures. Next, you (or the company creating the plan for you) should create diagrams to map out your building’s water systems. On this map, identify any potential trouble spots where Legionella could take hold and spread. The next step is to determine which control measures to apply and how to implement and monitor them. You also need to establish any interventions that need to be utilized in the event control limits are not met. Throughout the process, it is crucial to document every step along the way for total transparency and communication.
