Water Management Plans and Risk Assessments
Minimize risks in your facilities with a detailed water management plan. NSF’s experts identify hazards and recommend water safety measures, so your team can develop a comprehensive water management program that meets the health and safety needs of your properties.
The water management plans and risk assessments we develop help health care facilities meet and exceed the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requirements and Joint Commission standards on water management.
We also perform on-site risk assessments for Legionella and other waterborne pathogens.
Water Management Plans
Developing and maintaining a water management program on your own can be complicated and time-consuming. By the time you pull together all the details, your guests, residents or staff may have already been exposed to contaminated water.
To minimize hazards associated with buildings and industrial facilities, our experts develop comprehensive water management plans for building managers around the globe. Water management plans are utilized in all industries to minimize hazards and hazardous conditions related to water ingestion, inhalation and skin contact.
To develop your water management plan, we:
- Conduct a gap assessment of your existing water system or water management program
- Identify and assess potential hazards and hazardous events
- Identify and evaluate existing control measures
- Recommend new control measures or improvements to existing control measures, critical limits, monitoring procedures and corrective actions
- Provide suggestions for validation
The World Health Organization, the Health and Safety Executive in the United Kingdom and other health and safety organizations around the world recognize and accept water management plans for:
- Hospitals and health care facilities
- Food and beverage manufacturing facilities
- Corporate buildings
- Industrial buildings
No matter what industry you’re in, our globally recognized water management plans help you put health and safety first.
Legionella Risk Assessment
If you are a building owner or facility manager who wants to address hazards related to Legionella in your water systems, we offer an independent Legionella risk assessment to help you protect public health and comply with public health regulations or internal requirements.
Our risk assessment reviews all building water systems to evaluate hazardous conditions associated with this bacterium. Even if your facility already has a water management plan, NSF will provide a detailed report that identifies your specific Legionella risks.

Business Continuity During COVID-19 Requires Management of Building Water Systems Before Reopening
May 6, 2020
Controlling the spread of COVID-19 requires the collective effort of physical distancing. While this is imperative to save lives from the novel disease, many hotels, resorts, offices and other buildings are now partially or entirely shutdown. As a result, the water systems in these buildings are experiencing low to no flow, loss of disinfectant residual, tepid water temperatures and other hazardous conditions that can increase Legionella amplification, which can cause Legionnaires disease.
