Cross Connection Control & Backflow Prevention

Many public drinking water systems are contaminated each year by pollutants or contaminants that backflow into the water system through unprotected cross-connections. The State of Utah certifies Backflow Testers and Program Administrators to help prevent unprotected cross connections, and residents can take an active role in protecting their drinking water too.

The Division of Drinking Water does not endorse any specific individual or company. It is recommended that you contact and receive quotes from several testers to ensure a fair price for the testing and additional work to be done. If you wish to contact these individuals to hire for testing, it is recommended that you have available the installed assembly type, size, make and full model number.
