Safely Reopening Plumbing Systems

More businesses are trying to bring back employees and customers and many schools and university buildings are welcoming students back for the school year. Building managers need to take precautions to insure water safety for employees, customers and students. Stagnant water in pipes can cause elevated lead and copper levels and is a fertile breeding ground for the bacteria that causes Legionnaires’ Disease. Those looking for detailed information should visit the Building Wisconsin web page Turning on the Tap. In today’s video from Building Wisconsin TV, host Stuart Keith meets with plumbing professionals to find out about the steps necessary to safely reopen plumbing systems in buildings that have been closed or underused due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Special thanks to ASSE International and Plumbers Local 75.

Nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our colleagues in the pipe trades. Visit our Covid-19 page for UA Guidelines during this pandemic.
