TESTING COOLING TOWERS
In response to the recent outbreak of legionellosis in the Bronx and in an effort to prevent the spread of Legionella bacteria, the New York State Department of Health issued emergency regulations requiring the registration, testing, inspection and certification of cooling towers. Immediately, the Deer Park Union Free School District registered its cooling tower system servicing the Deer Park High School building. Additionally, in accordance with the regulation and current standard industry protocols, a New York State licensed engineer inspected the systems and collected culture samples in the system. We will post an update on the web site with the results of the testing.
Please be assured that the district is dedicating its efforts to prevent the spread of legionellosis. It is important to note that there have been no reported cases of the disease at the high school.
