The Cross Connection Control Department ensures the safety of EMD's water distribution system by administrating the Cross Connection / Backflow Prevention program in accordance with the Colorado Department of Health & Environment (CDPHE) Regulation 11.39. Commercial, industrial, multi-family and some single-family residential properties are requried to have backflow prevention assemblies installed, tested, and maintained annually. Backflow prevention assemblies ensure that under certain hydraulic conditions water being used on a customers' premise does not "backflow," or return, into the main public water supply. This is especially important if the customer is using water in such a way that it may become contaminated, i.e. with irrigation, fire suppression, mixing with chemicals, etc.
