  • Backflow Prevention and Cross-Connection Control (PDF)
    Backflow is the undesirable reversal of flow inside a potable water system, which can pollute or contaminate the public potable water system. This can happen when there is a loss of pressure in the public water system, such as during a main break or when a fire hydrant is in use. A cross-connection is any piping that could allow polluted or contaminated water into the potable water system. Learn what steps you can take to prevent these nuisances from occurring.
