Cooling Towers

The Notification of Cooling Towers and Evaporative Condensors Regulations 1992

Under the above regulations, all premises with cooling towers and evaporative condensers are required to register with the Council. It is a requirement that all property owners register all of these devices with the local authority because, without proper treatment, cooling towers can be the habitat for the development and dispersion of bacteria, especially legionella pneumophila. There is no charge for registration. Registration will provide the information to enable any outbreak to be properly investigated.

For further information about registration, please contact the Environmental Health section.
