The Wauwatosa Water Utility contracted with Aqua Backflow of Elgin, Il to manage the City's Cross Connection Control Program. Our Cross Connection Control Program is mandated by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. This inspection program is designed to protect public health and to protect our public water supply.
Aqua Backflow will be contacting specific customers to schedule an inspection of the water system in their building. Inspectors will catalog any existing backflow preventers, note when the backflow preventers are due for their annual tests, look for potential or existing cross connections, and require code compliance if any concerns exist.
The focus of an inspection and/or survey is to identify any existing or potential cross connections between drinking water and non-potable systems, inspect existing backflow prevention devices, and verify the backflow prevention devices have been tested within the past year. An inspection or survey does not replace the requirement for testing existing backflow prevention devices annually.
The Utility asks for your cooperation when Aqua Backflow calls to schedule an appointment or asks for information. Compliance with this program is mandatory for all water users. View the Cross Connection Program Brochure
