 Backflow & Cross Connection Control

Backflow Prevention Program

Backflow Prevention provides protection of our drinking water system from the introduction of contaminates and pollutants into our potable water system.  Backflow is the reversal of flow in a potable water distribution piping system as a result of a cross connection. 

The City of Winder requires annual inspection and testing of all commercial backflow devices from a State of Georgia certified tester with test results forwarded to our Cross Connection Control Technician.
