  Backflow Prevention

2-inch Backflow Preventer


The District voters authorized implementation of a backflow prevention program. This program is designed to minimize the risks associated with cross-connections between the Districtís water supply and any non-potable source of supply. All customers, including businesses, institutions, and residences, will have a backflow preventer installed at their meter. Additional backflow preventers will be required depending upon the degree of hazard posed by each customerís water uses. All lawn sprinkling systems, for example, must have approved backflow preventers that are installed by licensed plumbers and tested yearly by licensed backflow testers.  This policy is being enforced to protect the quality of your water supply. Please call us at 783-5494 if you have any questions about cross-connections.
