Do I need a backflow prevention assembly?

Typical households do not require backflow prevention assemblies.  Modern homes are designed in a fashion to inherently defend against backflow.  Many of the appliances in your home are already designed with air gaps and other methods of backflow prevention.  Most white collar business water demands also will not require a backflow, but restaurants for example likely will need a backflow prevention assembly.  Industrial users will nearly always require protection due to typical needs of these facilities.  If you would like to know more please contact the Public Utilities Coordinator.
