IBM Warwick: legionella traces found in water supply

Staff at a Warwickshire IT company have been sent home over concerns that its water supply is contaminated.

Traces of legionella bacteria, which can lead to Legionnaire's disease, have been found at IBM's Opus 40 site in Birmingham Road, Warwick.
A spokeswoman for Warwick District Council said so far there were no reports of anyone being ill.
She added samples were currently being tested to establish the levels of legionella bacteria at the site.
A site manager reported the discovery on Wednesday and all staff were sent home on Thursday morning as a precaution.
Legionnaires' disease is an uncommon form of pneumonia caused by the legionella bacterium.
A spokesman for the council's environmental health team said legionella bacteria were common and can be found naturally in environmental water sources and any water supply.

The water supply project that was meant to delete the woes of a land where the water resources have been contaminated by garbage has been caught in technical snags. It is safe to use purify water in your daily life. Thanks a lot.
