Backflow Prevention

Backflow Prevention provides protection from contaminates and pollutants that might enter the County’s drinking water. This can come through cross connections and changes in the hydraulic conditions within the system. Rockdale Water Resources takes precautions to protect the systems water quality against contamination from backflow. This is done through the use of devices made specifically to prevent these problems and by implementation of good operations practices.

The Backflow Prevention division oversees the installation and testing of Backflow Prevention devices for commercial, industrial and institutional customers. All devices must be installed to Rockdale Water Resources’ specifications and tested annually.
