    does any one find this interesting they traced legionaires disease to some cooling towers?

    That's not the only place they found it. It's been found in *hot* water lines in homes in Cleveland and in Pennsylvania.

    several years back, (7-10), one of our techs contracted it but it was never found out from where, one can only assume....3 million later in settlement, but says he would gladly give it all back for his health.

    It's been a long time since I've seen a wooden cooling tower. About 15 years ago while in San Fransico we were riding the BART to downtown and there was a section where in the distance was probably 1/2 a dozen old wood towers laying on there sides rotting away.
