Wiltshire Council, Legionella Risk Assessment

Client: Wiltshire Council

Location: Trowbridge

Description of Works: Legionella Risk Assessment

Duration: N/A



Wessex Electricals is a long term partner of Wiltshire Council. We initially started work for Salisbury District Council in the early 1970s on electrical works, and this arrangement has continued uninterrupted since then. More recently, we have been instructed to carry out numerous legionella risk assessments surveys on properties within the Wiltshire area.


Wiltshire council asked us to carry out a Legionella risk assessment on a bungalow in Trowbridge that’s used as sheltered accommodation. The survey was carried out and remedial works were identified including the removal of a water heater, redundant pipework that was creating areas of stagnant water which could be a breeding ground for Legionella bacteria and replacing Thermostatic Mixing Valves that had been painted over.

All works were completed satisfactorily and Wessex are now speaking with Wiltshire about adding the site to our Legionella control programme
