Cities' water distribution system are designed to keep water flowing from the distribution system to you the customer. However, when hydraulic conditions deviate from normal flow conditions, water flow can be reversed or backflow. When this backflow occurs, water can flow from the customer’s system back into the City’s distribution system.
Who Performs The Test?
Individuals certified and recognized by your city of residence for backflow prevention testing and repair must perform the tests. Upon completion, the tester will submit the test report(s) to the Environmental Division for entry.
