Cooling Towers & Evaporative Condensers

All premises where cooling towers and evaporative condensers are situated must register with the Local Authority under The Notification of Cooling Towers and Evaporative Condensers Regulations 1992.

 

The principal reason for the notification process is so that the Council can identify potential areas that could give rise to the spread of infectious diseases such as Legionnaires Disease.  Over recent years there have been a number of outbreaks of Legionnaires disease which have been associated with cooling towers and evaporative condensers.  Further information about Legionnaires Disease can be found on the Health and Safety Executives website http://www.hse.gov.uk/legionnaires/index.htm

You can notify us of your cooling tower or evaporative condenser by downloading and completing the application form below and returning it to the address on the form or e-mailing it to ehadmin@bedford.gov.uk  There is no cost for notifying the Council.
