ASTHO and ASDWA Release Factsheet for Building Water Systems on Water Quality Monitoring

The Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) in partnership with ASDWA released a new factsheet, Using Water Quality Monitoring Data for Your Building Water Management Program.

This factsheet was jointly developed with the ASTHO and outlines how to monitor water quality in facilities to prevent the growth of Legionella and other opportunistic pathogens. It discusses important basic water quality monitoring parameters, including temperature, pH, turbidity, and disinfectant residual. The document is meant to help water management program teams understand the water quality at the building point of entry so they can establish the water quality baseline for the building.
