A retirement community in Maryland is once again struggling to contain Legionella bacteria in its water supply.
Three residents of the Lutheran Village at Miller’s Grant in Ellicott City, Maryland were diagnosed with Legionnaires’ disease in late May of this year. County health officials shut off the water after determining that the retirement community was the source of the bacteria. After testing and treating the water, officials turned it back on in early July. The retirement community intended to continue testing until the water was shown to be clear of Legionella.
These tests have now shown that there is still Legionella present in the water system. The management staff has restricted water until the source of the bacteria has been found.
