   Backflow Cross Connections Survey
   A cross connection is defined as an actual or potential connection between a public water supply and a source of possible contamination or pollution .  All properties have potential cross connections . This can lead to serious health hazards when a backflow condition occurs .   Backflow can happen when the flow of water into your home or business is reversed by a sudden drop in pressure .   Water pressure can suddenly drop because of heavy usage , fire hydrant use , or a broken water main .
   You can prevent backflow , and contamination , from happening to your water supply by installing a backflow prevention device .  Common backflow prevention devices include:
   Installing a backflow prevention device is not a fix - it and forget - it solution .   There are testing requirements you need to follow .  City Ordinance #5401 requires backflow prevention devices to be tested as listed below .  
   Note:
    Hose bibs and anti - siphon faucets are not testable
    
   So , how do you know if you already have a backflow prevention device installed at your home or business?  If you have an underground sprinkler system , you likely have a pressure vacuum breaker ( PVB ) style device .  Commercial properties are more likely to have reduced pressure zone ( RPZ ) or double check valves , we don’t typically see these homes .  If you’re not sure , you can contact the Department of Utilities Water Department at 402 - 727 - 2613 .
   Now that you’ve identified if you have a backflow prevention device , which style you have , and what the testing requirements are; you’re likely wondering how do you get it tested and when? City Ordinance #5401 states ,
   “All tests shall be done by a Backflow Preventer Test and Repair Technician , Grade VI Water Supply Operator , certified by the State of Nebraska Department of Health .
   ”  Your plumber can help you with this .  The Department of Utilities is required to keep records of these tests and will issue reminder notices when testing is due .
