Disneyland California has shut down two water cooling towers after tests showed they gave off mist containing a high level of bacteria, thought to be Legionnaires disease.
According to the paper, the cooling towers in question appear to be associated with the cases of 12 people who spent time in Anaheim and then were discovered to have developed the disease roughly three weeks ago.
The people were between 52 to 94 years of age.
The person who died had "additional health issues", doctors said.
According to Legionella.Org, "Legionnaires' disease is a severe, often lethal, form of pneumonia It's caused by the bacterium Legionella pneumophila found in both potable and non-potable water systems". It is treated with antibiotics and hospital care, but one in 10 of those who contract the disease dies from infection.
Disneyland was informed of the cases on October 27.
"We conducted a review and learned that two cooling towers had elevated levels of Legionella bacteria", the statement said. The towers were chemically treated to combat the problem, and there is no ongoing threat to guests' health, the Register reports. "They have indicated there is no longer any known risk associated with our facilities".
The county agency issued an order November 8 requiring Disney to take the towers out of service until they are shown to be free from contamination. Cooling towers are evaporative systems that provide cooled water for various uses such as refrigeration but not for drinking water. The towers are not in public areas.
The other three cases were among residents of Anaheim, but they did not visit the park during the outbreak. Disney took the towers out of service on November 1, performed more testing and disinfection, and brought them back into service on November 5.
