Backflow/Cross Connection

The Town of Boone is required by law to have a cross connection control program to assure the public water system is adequately protected from the potential dangers of backflow and cross connections.

This can only be accomplished by installation of an approved mechanical devices and annual testing. This will prevent contaminated water from re-entering the distribution system. These devices are called “Backflow Prevention Assemblies” and are required to be installed on all commercial water lines, lawn irrigation lines, and fire sprinkler lines connected to the Town of Boone’s distribution system.

All “Backflow Prevention Assemblies” must be installed by a licensed plumber and tested by a Town, approved certified tester, annually to maintain compliance with the program requirements.
