To keep the water supply safe from contaminants that could be introduced into the water system through backflow, back siphonage, or back pressure from a customer’s plumbing system, Arizona Water Company administers the Cross-Connection Control Program in compliance with Arizona Administrative Code on Backflow Prevention (R18-4-215)
The program requires the installation, testing, and maintenance of approved backflow prevention assemblies on required plumbing systems. Customers must have their backflow assembly inspected and tested annually. Arizona Water Company will notify customers annually by mail when the inspections and tests are due. Customers are responsible for choosing, hiring, and paying their backflow tester to inspect, test, and repair, (if necessary), their backflow assembly. Please visit Backflow Prevention/Cross-Connection Control - Arizona Water Company for more information.
