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.
