Safe Drinking Water
Cross-connections are a serious threat to the health and safety of all water users! Consumers turn their faucets on and what they believe to be "safe drinking water" is immediately available, pure and plentiful. "Safe drinking water" is Federally mandated and regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency. However, despite these strict regulations, extremely dangerous situations could occur when back flow contaminants are inadvertently allowed to enter our safe drinking water supplies! Cross-connection control is a long-term investment, which requires a cooperative effort between plumbing and health officials, the Utility, and property owners. The Water Utility greatly appreciates your help in keeping our water supply safe.
