Property owners that install systems which could potentially drain non-City or used water back into the City’s system should install backflow preventers. These systems might include irrigation systems connected to the City’s system that are also serviced by a well, cooling systems with secondary storage containers, or other types of systems.
These systems must be inspected annually by an approved tester. In addition, they must also be tested by an approved tester immediately after installation or repairs of any kind. The inspector should submit a Field Test Report.
