The Cross Connection Control Program is implemented to reasonably reduce the risk of contamination to the District’s distribution systems and to reasonably reduce the District’s exposure to legal liability arising from the backflow of any contaminant originating from a customer’s plumbing system and then supplied to other customers.
All new residential customers are required to fill out and return a completed Water Use Questionnaire and all new non-residential customers are required to fill out and return a completed Preliminary Cross Connection Control Hazard Assessment Form. Also, fill out one of the forms if you are modifying the use of the property or remodeling.
Your form will be evaluated and one of our Cross Connection Control Specialists may call you to schedule an inspection of your property to determine the type of backflow protection required on your service. Backflow protection assemblies are required to be tested annually.
A list of Dept. of Health-approved backflow assembly testers is provided here so you may choose the tester for your needs. As a convenience, you may contact the water department to schedule the District to annually test your device and invoice you for the testing.
A list of DOH-approved backflow assembly testers can be found here. Alternatively, you can contact the water department and arrange for the PUD to perform your annual assembly testing and invoice you for the service.
If you would like to be added to our approved Backflow Assembly Tester list that is provided to our customers, please provide a current BAT certification and calibration to the Water Department at [email protected] or by mail to the PUD’s mailing address.
