Legionnaires’ disease is a form of pneumonia that develops when someone breathes in the legionella bacteria from aerosolized (water vapor) water. Most healthy people exposed to the legionella bacteria do not become sick. Legionnaires’ disease is treated with antibiotics. You can not get Legionnaires’ disease from eating or drinking water.
Hamilton Township has a higher than expected number of cases of Legionnaires' disease in residents. The Township has an ongoing investigation into these cases along with our partners at the New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH) and New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP).
Testing has identified the legionella bacteria in the cold water within Trenton Water Work's (TWW) system, and all residents are advised to take the action steps we have outlined online at www.hamiltonnj.com/legionella. It is especially important that TWW customers take these steps.
