Legionella Testing And Reporting Now Required in Vancouver

Operating Permits Required for Cooling Towers, Water Treatment Systems and Decorative Fountains.

To more effectively respond to incidents, mitigate health risks by pathogens (such as Legionella pneumophila), and ensure compliance with updated standards, operating permits help the City and health authorities track new and existing:

Cooling towers

Decorative water features

Non-potable water systems and other building water systems

1Clearwater has the EOCP team certification and technology to ensure monthly compliance with City regulations, keep your operating permit up to date and do annual and emergency cleaning and disinfection.

As of last January 1, 2021, all decorative water features, cooling towers and evaporative condensers in the City of Vancouver require;

• An operating permit

• A maintenance logbook on-site per system

• Annual offline cleaning and disinfection

• Legionella culture test at system start-up

• Action plan when Legionella bacteria result is >10 CFU/ml

Additionally, effective January 1, 2022, you must now include;

• Legionella tests monthly (Bi-monthly for decorative water features)

• EOCP “Building Water System Operator” certification associated with each system operating permit

Now you can rely on the 1Clearwater to offer you our management services to help you comply with these new city bylaw requirements.

Legionella Sampling & Testing

1Clearwater will conduct monthly sampling of the cooling tower system and laboratory submission for Legionella culture testing.

EOCP Certification

In addition to Legionella sample collection, 1Clearwater can apply their EOCP “Building Water System Operator” certification to your operating permit as part of an ongoing maintenance plan, so that you or your building staff don’t have to go through the certification process.
