Where is backflow protection needed?
Backflow protection is needed wherever the possibility of contamination of the public water supply exists. While the city’s Public Works Department has the authority to regulate commercial buildings only, the need for backflow protection also exists in residential areas. As a homeowner, it is your responsibility to protect others in the water system as well as the people living in your home.
