The District’s Backflow Testing Program was established to track the installation and testing of service protection backflow assemblies within the District’s service area. It is designed to ensure high quality and reliable potable water services for all of our customers required to have a backflow device.
The cost associated with the program is included in monthly bills for customers with approved assemblies. The program is voluntary, so if you want to test your device on your own please let us know. A copy of the Backflow Assembly Test Report to be filled out by a certified tester is provided here as well as a list of Certified Backflow Testers.Backflow Assembly Test FormCertified Backflow Testers
The monthly fee does not cover backflow repair or replacement costs. Should your device require significant repair or replacement the customer will be responsible for those costs.
If you are unfamiliar with these type of devices and would like to learn more about their benefit, use/function, and requirements, etc. go to the American Backflow Prevention Association website.
For any backflow-related questions or concerns please contact our Backflow Specialist at (760) 728-1178 extension 159.
