End-to-End Cross-Connection Control Management

Cross-connection control is a fact of life. Most state and local regulations require water providers to develop and maintain a viable Cross-Connection Control Program, to help minimize the threat of backflow in their communities. Many Public Water Providers implement successful programs on their own to address cross-connections, however many are challenged by budgets, limited staff and resources.

HydroCorp provides state to state customized services and training that assist municipal water systems with cost effective compliance

CROSS-CONNECTION-CONTROL

Why is a Cross-Connection Control Program So Important?

A cross-connection control program is not only critical from a public health perspective, but also in preventing significant exposure, litigation, and financial loss to anyone not in compliance with this important regulation.
1
It Protects Public Health.

Normally, water in a home or building flows in one direction. Under certain conditions, water can actually flow backwards; this is known as backflow, which can introduce contaminants into the drinking water supply with dangerous – even lethal – consequences.

2
It’s The Law.

State and local regulations and plumbing code requires approved backflow prevention methods to be installed at every point of potable water connection and use. Fines, penalties and the loss of water service are all possible if non-compliant. Furthermore, if contamination occurs and an individual or a group of individuals or their property suffers damage due to a backflow incident, they may seek damages from the municipality and the entity that contributed to the contamination.
