Cross Connection Control Program - Public Awareness
Residential (service lines smaller than 1 1/4."):
These types of service connections are generally considered low hazard and adequate backflow protection is normally provided by a dual check valve installed at the meter. However, a separate backflow preventer is required on all landscape sprinkler systems using culinary water. The consumer has the responsibility of preventing pollutants and contaminants from entering the public water supply. The consumer’s responsibility starts at the point of delivery from the public water system and includes all of the consumer’s private system.
Commercial (service lines larger than 1 1/4."):
These types of service connections pose varying degrees of hazard to the public water system. The type of backflow assembly required depends on the type of hazard. A hazard assessment performed by the City can determine the required type of assembly. It is the business owner's responsibility to purchase the backflow assembly and hire a licensed plumber to install it at the water service entrance. Within ten days of being placed into service, the assembly must be tested by a certified backflow technician and a test report must be sent to the City. This test and report must be updated annually.
