Description

This map displays information about registered cooling towers within New York State. The data is self-reported by owners/property managers of cooling towers in service in New York State. In August 2015 the New York State Department of Health released emergency regulations requiring the owners of cooling towers to register them with New York State, in addition the regulation includes requirements: regular inspection; annual certification; obtaining and implementing a maintenance plan; record keeping; reporting of certain information; and sample collection and culture testing to protect public health. All cooling towers in New York State, including New York City, need to be registered in the NYS system. Registration is done through an electronic database found at: www.ny.gov/services/register-cooling-tower-and-submit-reports. For more information, check http://www.health.ny.gov/diseases/communicable/legionellosis/. The "About" tab contains additional details concerning this dataset.
