An investigation of Legionella pneumophila in drinking water systems and home plumbing appurtenances was done in two phases. In Phase 1, 68 water samples were collected from hot and cold kitchen sink faucets in homes on 17 community water systems. No L. pneumophila organisms were isolated. In Phase 1A, the kitchen sink faucets/aerators and showerheads/supply pipes were sampled with sterile swabs and a sample of hot water was collected from hot water heaters. 184 samples (92 swabs, 92 hot water samples) were collected from homes on 4 community water systems. Two samples (1 swab, 1 hot water sample) were collected from a home with an individual well. Field analyses of pH, temperature, turbidity, and chlorine and laboratory analyses for standard plate count, total coliform, and iron were performed.
