Cross Connection Control Surveys

Bay Area Backflow, Inc. employs certified and licensed technicians to provide cross-connection control surveys throughout California and Nevada.

To determine the degree of hazard of all components to a water system, including recycled water, industrial fluids, fuel or any other substance. It is the responsibility of the cross connection control specialist to identify and determine if a deficiency exists, the degree of hazard and recommendation for correction. If you are a business in the medical field, manufacturing, food processing or use recycled water, etc. you may be required to complete a cross-connection shutdown test or survey by either your local water purveyor or the State Water Resources Control Board.

A preliminary onsite meeting will be required to provide an accurate written quote for the required work. Once approved, an inspection is scheduled with the customer and arrangements are made for an escort with knowledge of the entire water distribution system. The escort ensures that any questions that arise concerning the water distribution system can be answered accurately and expeditiously. During the inspection, the water supplies will be located along with any auxiliary water supplies. A review of any contaminants liquid, solid, or gaseous will be evaluated to determine the degree of hazard as it relates to the water system. The specialist will review the equipment that may require internal backflow protection such as but not limited to: boilers, cooling towers, chemical dispensers, laboratory equipment, clean room equipment, fire sprinkler systems, irrigation systems, recycled water, etc... If a hazard to the potable water system has been discovered, you will be made aware of the code that is not in compliance and provided recommendations to make corrections or install a backflow prevention device at any/all service connections.

Once the survey is completed, a detailed report including photos will be prepared and submitted to the customer. The report includes details on water uses, equipment, existing and potential cross-connections, the degree of hazard of any equipment on site, and existing backflow prevention assemblies. Specific recommendations required to eliminate any potential hazards along with reference to tjhe UPC code compliance, and state regulations will also be provided.
