The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) amendments of 1986 (Public Law 99-339) requires community water systems to prevent contamination of the domestic water system from backflow. All water purveyors (i.e., owners of the water system) have a responsibility to provide water to the customer that meets recognized and accepted water quality standards, thereby ensuring protection of public health. The water purveyor must plan and diligently execute a program of cross connection control that either (a) eliminates all cross connections where backflow contamination could occur or (b) requires the installation and maintenance of an approved backflow prevention assembly at the water service connection where a potential contamination hazard exists.
We will be discussing the basic principles of backflow contamination, analyses of cross connection controls, responsibilities of the water system owner (purveyor), and regulations associated with cross connection control and backflow protection (i.e. testing and assemblies).
Registrations are closed for this event.
