Statutory obligation to scrutinize

A regular screening for legionella is compulsory for certain groups according to the drinking water ordinance TrinkwV 2001 and the current second bylaw of the TrinkwV (14.12.2012). The Studierendenwerk Siegen as owner and administrator of student residences belongs to one of the groups and is therefore obliged to scrutinize. According to §14 of the drinking water ordinance systems used for heating drinking water which contain showers or other facilities for nebulization of water  need to be checked at least every three years for legionella.
