The number of cases of Legionellosis reported to the Federal Center for Disease Control and Prevention totals 624 to date this year, compared to 436 for the corresponding period last year—a 43 percent increase. In some parts of the country the numbers double to triple those reported at this time last year.
To shed light on the disease and its causes, AWT has released “Legionella 2003: An Update and Statement by AWT.” The paper is scheduled to be presented at the 2003 AWT Water Technologies Convention and Expo in Phoenix this September. It can be viewed at www.awt.org/Legionella03.pdf.
