Residential & Commercial/Industrial Cross-Connection Information
Inspections are performed on all commercial, industrial, public authority, multi–family, and residential buildings connected to the water supply in order to detect actual and potential cross–connections and to make recommendations for the installation of backflow prevention methods or devices, wherever necessary. This action ensures that contaminated water cannot backflow into our clean, drinking water supply.
Inspections occur on varying frequencies based on the hazard level of a given facility. Examples of the frequency may be, but not limited to:
- Commercial, Industrial, Public Authority and Multi–Family – 2 Year Cycle
- Commercial like Residential – 10 Year Cycle
- Residential – 10 Year Cycle
The Cross–Connection Control Program shall include residential and non–residential properties. Residential surveys are coordinated with our water meter replacement program. When a water meter is replaced, a residential cross–connection inspection will also be performed. Most Commercial inspections will also be coordinated with the water replacement program. High-risk Commercial and industrial are not coordinated with the residential inspection cycle. Rather, these higher–risk facilities are to have inspections completed every 2-years and provide the Village the inspection report.
