What if I Don’t Perform the Backflow Testing?

Backflow testing is required by law and it’s aim is to protect the public water and the public’s safety. If you received a letter, you must conduct the test within the 30 days given, otherwise you will receive a warning letter. After the second note, they may shut off your water.

 

Also if you applied for a certificate of occupancy for a new building renovation or sold/purchased a building, you will need to conduct a backflow test to receive final approval.
