Water cooling systems

All cooling towers and warm water systems are regulated under the Public Health Act 2010 by Council due to the potential risks of Legionnaires Disease.

All premises with these systems installed are required to be registered with Council. To register, complete and return the Health Premises Registration Form.

Council officers conduct inspections of cooling towers and warm water systems to ensure compliance with the Australian Standards AS/NZS 3666.2 2002 and AS/NZS 3666.3.2000. These standards can be reviewed at our Council libraries.


The information on this page may not be correct during this unprecedented health event. Essential services are still being provided to the community, however many Council services and programs have been placed on hold while facilities and some open spaces are closed.
Our COVID-19 information area details all impacts to Council services, facilities and programs as well as the local response to coronavirus.

Owner/occupier responsibilities

Owners and occupiers of premises containing these systems are responsible for ensuring the proper installation, commissioning, operation and maintenance of the regulated system.

Operation and maintenance records must be kept on-site and made accessible to Council officers at all times.

For further information, contact Council’s Environmental Health Officer on 1300 463 954, or visit the NSW Public Health website.
