The Cross Connection Control program works to protect the drinking water supply from pollution or contamination. This is done through established policy, administering guidelines and enforcement related to cross connections.
The program is a cooperative effort between plumbing and health officials, water surveyors, property owners and certified testers. It defines the type of protection required, the responsibility for the administration and enforcement, and provides public education tools.
The City's role in the program is to prevent non-potable water from flowing into the City's drinking water (potable water).
