This program provides for the inspection of plumbing facilities in all industrial, commercial, governmental and residential water customers in the city. Cross connections to the city potable water system are potential sources of contamination and need to be identified and corrected. This program will provide that through onsite inspections. There is no cost for the inspection and each inspection takes less than 45 minutes on average for a commercial, governmental and industrial property and 10 minutes for residential.
Starting in May, 2012, Hydro Designs Inc. will send postal notices and begin to perform the initial inspections of commercial, governmental and industrial buildings throughout the City to detect actual & potential cross connections and make recommendations for the installation of DNR mandated backflow prevention devices or assemblies where necessary. This will help ensure that contaminated or polluted water cannot backflow into clean city drinking water. City Water Department crews will begin the same inspection process for city residential water users.
Your cooperation with the inspectors is greatly appreciated to help keep our city drinking water system safe.
