As the temperatures rise and summer approaches, it's essential for businesses and facilities to be vigilant about Legionella risks. With warmer weather creating ideal conditions for bacterial growth, proactive measures are crucial to safeguarding public health. In this blog, we explore the challenges posed by Legionella during the summer months and how GES Water can help businesses mitigate these risks effectively. 
 
Understanding the Summer Spike in Legionella Risks 
 
During the summer, higher temperatures can cause water temperatures to rise, creating an optimal environment for Legionella bacteria to thrive. Additionally, factors such as stagnant water in unused or poorly maintained systems, increased usage of cooling towers, and reduced water flow in hot water systems can further exacerbate the risk of Legionella growth. 
 
The Importance of Proactive Risk Management 
 
Effective Legionella risk management is essential year-round, but it becomes particularly critical during the summer months. Failure to address these risks can lead to outbreaks of Legionnaires' disease, a severe form of pneumonia that can pose significant health risks to individuals exposed to contaminated water sources.
