The Maintenance Program and Plan (MPP) is a detailed plan customized for a cooling tower system that describes operational and administrative strategies and process control measures to be taken to prevent and control the growth of Legionella.
MPPs must provide a comprehensive description of actions (i.e., step-by-step instructions), including details, contacts, and information. These management and maintenance requirements must include, at a minimum:
Certified water technologist with training and experience developing management plans and performing inspections in accordance with industry best practices, published standards, and regulatory requirements
Environmental consultant who has at least two years of operational experience in water management planning and operation
In addition to a qualified plan preparer, building owners may also retain certain qualified individuals with the appropriate experience and certifications to conduct cleaning, disinfection, compliance inspections or sampling. Before hiring a qualified person, you should ask them about their experience in environmental remediation, licenses/permits, customer references, and any other matters of concern.
