Recommendations for Water Supply Flushing for Reopening of Buildings Under Statewide COVID-19 Transition Plan
May 05, 2020
As buildings reopen, it is critical to drain, flush, and if necessary, based on a review of building conditions, disinfect the hot and cold-water systems to remove harmful contaminants. Devices that store water, such as drinking water fountains, water heaters, storage tanks, and any droplet or mist-forming devices such as cooling towers, humidifiers, showerheads, and certain medical and manufacturing devices and process equipment should also be flushed and disinfected in accordance with manufacturer's recommendations or industry best practices.
The Ohio Department of Health and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency have issued the "Guidance for Premise Plumbing Water Service Restoration."
