Cross Connection Control Program
Pursuant to the Village of Palm Springs Ordinance 2010-26 State Health regulations, imposed on all water purveyors, is that they have a program for identifying and eliminating cross connections to the potable water system.The purpose of the Cross Connection Control program is to protect the health, safety, and welfare of those persons consuming potable water from the village's water system through preventing waterborne diseases and contaminants from entering the public water system.
The program is intended to prevent water from private plumbing systems (which could contain waterborne diseases and contaminants) from entering the public water system through backflow or cross connection. Backflow prevention devices eliminate the possibility of a cross connection occurring.
Our goal is to assure all of our residences safe drinking water, and we believe our program helps to identify and eliminate any possible cross connection to our water distribution system. We want to assure our customers that the very last user on our water line has water that is just as safe as the very first user and that nothing has entered the system in between.
View Ordinance 2010-26 for a further detailed explanation of the Village's Cross Connection Program and the Backflow prevention guidelines.
