The City of Coalinga currently has nearly one hundred twenty backflow devices currently in place and almost one hundred more are set to be installed. A cross-connection program would not exist if it were not for certified backflow testers.
We accept both American Water Works Association (AWWA) or American Backflow Preventers Association (ABPA) credentials. These are generally one-week courses that fully prepare you to test backflow preventers.
Should you need guidance, please contact the Public Utilities Coordinator. We will be able to provide you with information on the process of becoming certified, expected outcomes, and other pertinent information.
The Public Utilities Coordinator has both in field and office duties, should you need a meeting please call prior. An arrangement can then be made.
