Backflow code changes

 Backflow code changes

​One of the many ways that we protect our community's drinking water is by working with our commercial customers to prevent backflow.

Backflow can carry contaminants associated with business uses into our community's drinking water.

The prevention of backflow is the responsibility of individual commercial customers, but we're here to help. For example, we're proposing changes to sections of the City Code to give you more time and flexibility to comply with state and local regulations.

The Utilities Board and City Council will consider proposed City Code changes at their meetings Feb. 22, Feb. 28 and March 14.
