About Legionellosis


Legionellosis is the most significant waterborne disease in the U.S. It accounts for thousands of hospital admissions and many deaths, and some portion of those are associated with exposure to plumbing water aerosols. While traditional waterborne disease concerns have been significantly controlled in developed countries by central water treatment technologies, the principal waterborne disease risks today are associated with distribution and plumbing and cooling towers associated with post treatment contamination and regrowth of harmful microorganisms.


The Symposium will focus on practical management and prevention. It features U.S. and international experts on all aspects of identifying risks, analytical and monitoring methodologies, and managing practical preventive and mitigation solutions. It will include the latest practical monitoring and preventive and mitigation treatment technology and management approaches, and provide essential information for buildings, hospitals and other at-risk facilities as well as mitigation providers, plumbing industry professionals, water suppliers, and public health authorities.  To reduce risks and maximize the benefits for the most people, there will be one or more post-conference webinars on the topic as well as published detailed proceedings – providing access to the conference information for years to come.
