Renovate for Water Quality

Department of Veterans Affairs – Salem VA Medical Center, Salem, VA

What We Did

Provided a complete analysis and documentation of the interior domestic hot and cold water systems through continuous temperature monitoring and chlorine analyzers at critical locations. Also identified unused branch lines/dead end pipe legs, with demolition and remediation plans for their elimination. Developed riser and flow diagrams, reviewed existing water testing results, and developed alternates for treatment options and water distribution to control Legionella bacteria based on treatment effectiveness, implementation cost, operations and maintenance cost and system complexity.
