Guidance for Building Reopenings

Plumbing & Water Systems

Post Date:04/30/2020 10:58 AM

As the Governor moves forward with opening the state back up, we need to be aware that there are many buildings that have sat vacant for quite some time whose plumbing systems will need to be flushed.

HERE is guidance for building water systems that was developed by the Ohio Association of Plumbing Inspectors (OAPI), the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF), and the International Code Council (ICC). Important Steps to Take Before your Business or Building Reopens after Periods of No or Low-Water usage:

The major concern is the building water systems that have had no use or little use, compared to what they were designed for initially, for a period of 4 to 8 weeks and possibly longer. Due to the high levels of inactivity, there is a significant risk that opportunistic water-borne pathogens such as Legionella have been growing and promulgating throughout building water systems.

We would appreciate if you could pass this information along to businesses within your community, Chambers of Commerce, social media, website, etc.
