Water/Waste Water Division:
Stagnant, or standing water can cause conditions that increase the risk for growth and spread of different bacteria. When water is stagnant, hot water temperatures can decrease to the Legionella growth range (77–108°F, 25–42°C). Stagnant water can also lead to low or undetectable levels of disinfectant, such as chlorine.
