Shropshire Council

Cooling towers

A business or premises that has wet cooling towers and/or evaporative condensers within Shropshire needs to register with this department.

Submit cooling tower application »

The primary purpose of cooling tower and condenser notification is to ensure that the relevant enforcing authority can be satisfied that suitable control measures are in place to protect employees and the general public from the risk of infection by organisms such as legionella. If a cooling tower and/or evaporative condenser becomes redundant and is decommissioned or dismantled, we should be notified so that the cooling tower register can be altered accordingly.
