The company however has chosen to take all three cooling towers out of operation.
The Notice was served for a failure to devise and implement a sustained and effective biocide control programme in one cooling tower.
Issuing the Improvement Notice does not mean that this cooling tower has been identified as the source of the outbreak. What needs to be understood is that the source of the outbreak may never be conclusively identified.
HSE can issue an Improvement Notice if it believes that correct procedures are not being followed but there is not an immediate risk to workers or members of the public. It sets out what remedial action is necessary and a deadline for its completion.
