Cooling Tower Registration



Health and Mental Hygiene, Department of City

Building owners and property managers are now required to register cooling towers, fluid coolers and evaporative condensers with the City. If you have any of this equipment, you must register through the NYC Health Department at Cooling Tower Registration. This is in compliance with Local Law 77 of 2015, which was made effective August 18th, 2015.

Owners and managers must also create and keep on site a maintenance plan for each cooling tower system. A model for a plan is found below.
