Backflow Device Model

 The purpose of cross connection control and backflow prevention is to ensure that all drinking water systems remain clean and safe for public use. Federal, state and local codes require public water systems to:

  • Conduct customer service inspections on private plumbing systems
  • Require backflow protection using appropriate backflow assemblies=
  • Require those assemblies be tested to ensure they are working correctly

By City Ordinance Number 53.003 (Cross Connection and Backflow Prevention) some property owners in Pflugerville are required to install and maintain backflow prevention devices and perform annual tests on them as proof of compliance.
