Public drinking water systems have testing requirements that must be completed by a certified operator. See R309-300 Drinking Water System Operators. Many operators also obtain a certification as a backflow technician. See R309-305 Certification Rules for Backflow Technicians (aka Cross Connections).


Under Utah State Law, the Utah Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is required to verify the lawful presence in the United States of an individual at least 18 years of age (includes sole proprietor doing business under an assumed name) who has applied for Water Operator certification or Backflow Technician certification. This law also applies for renewal, reinstatement, and reciprocity applications.
