Cooling towers or evaporative condenser

Persons in control of non-domestic premises where cooling towers and evaporative condensers are situated must inform Thanet Council, in writing, of their existence under The Notification of Cooling Towers and Evaporative Condensers Regulations 1992.

The prime purpose of this action is to enable the Council to identify areas that could give rise to the potential spread of infectious disease such as Legionella, and to assist control measures to eliminate the risk of such infection arising to employees and the public.

  • the address where the cooling tower(s) or evaporative condenser(s) are located

  • the number of cooling towers or evaporative condensers at the premises
