Backflow Certification & Installations

We are certified AWWA backflow testers.

We evaluate backflow requirements for businesses on an individual basis when a water account is established.  Businesses that present a potential backflow hazard are required to install the appropriate backflow prevention device and have it tested annually.

We determine backflow hazard by evaluating the type of business, how the business uses water, and what type of equipment or appliances are connected to the building’s water supply system. One way we determine backflow hazard is by asking customers to complete a Backflow Assessment Form to gather more information about their water use.

Types of businesses that are required to install a backflow preventer include:

Restaurants
Dry cleaners
Medical offices
Funeral homes
Beauty and nail salons
Car washes
Multi-tenant retail space
Any commercial building three stories or taller
Any commercial space with a dedicated fire service line / sprinkler system
Churches with baptismal pools
Other businesses may be required to install a backflow preventer based on backflow hazard.
