In order to help better manage the health and safety of the potable water supply and deliver safe service levels to customers, the City has developed a cross connection control program. A Cross Connection Control Program protects the potable water supply from contaminants being introduced into the potable water system caused by back-siphonage or backpressure. Approved backflow prevention devices are necessary to protect the potable water from this contamination.
The intent of the Cross Connection Control Program is to:
A backflow assembly test form must be completed and returned to the engineering and operations department.

All devices must be approved by Canadian Standard CAN/CSA B64.10 (most current). Devices can be searched through the CSA International website at CSA Certified Product Listings. A backflow device not on this list will not be accepted.
British Columbia Water and Waste Association and Cross Connection Control
BC Water & Waste Association (BCWWA) is the recognized authority for the voluntary certification of backflow assembly testers in British Columbia and Yukon. Currently our cross connection control (CCC) membership consists of over 1,800 certified testers, certified inspectors and administration members.
