Special Notice for Businesses Regarding Re-opening


Special Notice for Owners and Managers of Buildings Which Have Been Shut Down Due to COVID-19 Concerns

As we look toward the future of re-opening our businesses and buildings, PCWA feels it is of utmost importance to inform owners and managers of buildings which have been closed for weeks or months due to COVID-19 concerns of the best practices to help ensure the health and safety of the occupants of your buildings. While PCWA continually tests the quality of our water throughout our distribution system, there is no way, aside from outreach and education, to ensure that the quality is maintained beyond your water meter due to the complexities and unknowns under your ownership. The plans and tips contained in the guide from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) we are linking you to are very good for general management of your building water systems, and even more so now that these buildings have been on forced closure for prolonged periods. The shortest way to convey this message is to say that every part of your building’s water system needs to be flushed thoroughly until you are sure every part of the system is receiving fresh water from the main. You can find the full guide to the document titled Developing a Water Management Program to Reduce Legionella Growth & Spread in Buildings here: https://www.cdc.gov/legionella/downloads/toolkit.pdf
