Cooling towers

Notification of cooling tower and evaporative condensers

Cooling towers and evaporative condensers have the potential to cause outbreaks of disease, e.g. legionnaire's disease.

Given the right set of circumstances legionella can multiply in cooling towers and evaporative condensers and cause infection in people who inhale airborne water droplets containing the bacteria.
For this reason all cooling towers and evaporative condensers in premises within the Corby Borough must be registered with Corby Borough Council's Environmental Health Section under The Notification of Cooling Towers and Evaporative Condensers Regulations 1992 .

The primary purpose of cooling tower and evaporative condenser registration is to ensure that the relevant enforcing authority can be satisfied that suitable control measures are in place to protect employees and the general public from the risk of infection by organisms such as legionella.

If you would like to register with Corby Borough Council please complete the application form in our downloads section.
