In its all-out war against the mighty legionella bacteria, New York has passed sweeping legislation regarding cooling towers over the past year. One of the upcoming deadlines in New York City and State regarding compliance is the portion of the laws that require annual cooling tower certification. In the State of New York, building owners and property managers must annually certify that their cooling towers have been inspected, tested, cleaned and disinfected in compliance with New York State Legionella Law - Part 4 of Title 10: Protection Against Legionella. New York City has their own version of this law that must also be followed by building owner that operate a cooling tower with the five boroughs of NYC; the requirements of which are spelled out in Local Law 77 of 2015 and Chapter 8 (Cooling Towers) of Title 24 of the Rules of the City of New York.
