What is a Backflow Prevention Device?
Just what its name implies, it prevents water from flowing back into the water lines from a residence or business. Backflow devices are required when there is a possibility of backflow contamination to the water lines which may occur from irrigation systems and some high risk residential and commercial properties where there are conditions that might warrant additional protection to the potable water supply for both the customer and the Town.
