TO ALL CUSTOMERS
Protecting your drinking water supply is also your responsibility!
State regulations require residential, commercial and industrial customers served by a public water system to protect the public water system from potential contamination. Under certain conditions water from private plumbing can flow into the public water distribution system. This is referred to as backflow. In order to prevent potential backflow, some customers are required to install and maintain backflow prevention devices on the main water service lines.
Please read the following information to become familiar with the state requirements.
327 Indiana Administrative Code 8-10 Cross Connection Control (327 IAC 8-10) Facilities That Require a Backflow Prevention Device If the activities on your premises are listed below then you must have or install a state approved cross connection control device on each water service line and promptly submit test results to Goshen Water Company. The state designates the following list of facilities as cross connection hazards; a state approved reduced pressure principle backflow preventer shall be installed on the customer service line serving these facilities, unless otherwise specified.
No secondary source of water supply shall be physically connected on the customer service line to or into the facility
What Is A Cross Connection?
A cross connection is a connection between a contaminated source and your drinking water system. Backflow occurs when the water flow is reversed, due to a change in pressure, and water flows backwards, into and through the system. This creates a potentially hazardous situation.
How Are Cross Connections Controlled?
The installation of a back flow prevention device, otherwise known as a cross connection control device, is required under any circumstance where contamination may occur.
