The City of Wendell does not set pricing for testing. Each individual backflow tester sets their own fees. They are required by the State of Idaho to be certified every year and for their equipment to pass state calibration testing every year.

 

A copy of the paperwork needs to be kept on file at Wendell City Hall

 

Please make sure that you use a State Licensed Backflow Prevention tester.

 

All irrigation systems supplied by public water require a plumbing permit before installation. All piping and materials upstream of (before) the backflow prevention assembly must be of a type which is approved by the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials.

 

For more information on backflow prevention, google backflow or cross connection. You will find a wealth of information on this topic.

 

Cross-Connection & Backflow

 

Any connection between drinking water supply and any source of non-drinkable liquid, solid, or gas is considered a Cross-Connection .

 

When circumstances are just right, generally caused by unequal pressure, a non-drinkable substance can either be pushed or pulled into a drinking water supply. This is called Backflow.

 

We need and want our water supply to be safe, pure, and uncontaminated.
