The stakes of Legionella contamination are high. Legionnaires’ disease is the single leading killer among all indoor building contaminants in the U.S. Estimates of the annual number of Legionnaires’ disease cases in the United States range from 10,000 to more than 100,000. The incubation period is from two to 10 days, and the resulting illness is a pneumonia with a high fatality rate.
