Safeguarding the Public Water System
Safeguarding the Public Water System is an essential part of backflow prevention.
Each connection to the public water system is an opportunity for non-potable water to enter the public water system. Without backflow testing and prevention devices, water from residential plumbing systems, sprinkler systems, swimming pools, and businesses could flow into our public water supply.
Local, state and federal guidelines and laws are in place to protect the public’s water supply. Backflow preventers are installed and tested annually to avoid hazardous water entering the public water system.
