Legionella result notices
No news is good news. In November and December 2019, 322 water samples were taken from showers in multi-family buildings and other facilities with showers across post to test for Legionella bacteria. The Directorate of Public Works Environmental Division notified residents in nine buildings that had levels of bacteria over the actionable threshold. The levels detected were not dangerous to residents. All residents in these buildings were notified, countermeasures were put in place and retesting completed.
Due to the number of results, residents in buildings not impacted were not notified of their test results. For more information, visit home.army.mil/wiesbaden and search “Legionella.”
