Legionella bacteria can be living in your water supply, in fact anywhere in your building where water collects. It causes Legionellosis, a pneumonia like illness; the most well known form being Legionnaires' disease
The bacteria are common in water systems, such as rivers and lakes but rarely in such concentrated quantities for people to catch Legionnaires' disease.
