Backflow Prevention

Backflow Prevention & Cross Connection Control
Midvale City is dedicated to providing our residents and customers with safe, clean drinking water. Maintaining a backflow prevention program is one of the ways the City accomplishes this goal.

A joint responsibility between the City and its residents/customers must exist to ensure all areas of the water distribution system are adequately protected. As a result, the City will provide a safe, adequate water supply to the residents/customers who maintain their plumbing system in compliance with local ordinances, requirements, codes, and policies.

A backflow incident can seriously affect the quality and safety of our drinking water supply. Common possible cross-connections include landscape sprinkling systems, hose attachments for utility sinks, and garden hoses. In addition, backflow prevention assemblies provide the public water system with protection against contamination or pollution.
