Cross-Connection Control and Backflow Prevention

HHWSD is responsible for protecting the public water system from contamination due to backflow occurrences through its distribution system and water service connections in accordance with CDPHE Regulation 11. HHWSD needs the assistance and the cooperation of the public to ensure this responsibility is met and may request access to a property or facility to conduct an on-site cross-connection control audit. HHWSD requires the installation of a containment assembly on commercial property service lines. Failure to comply with installation, maintenance, and annual testing requirements of the HHWSD or City Of Boulder's Cross-Connection Control Section may result in suspension of service. Boulder Revised Code 11-1-13 will be used to determine the if an assembly is required and Code 11-1-25 will serve as the basis for selecting the method to control a cross connection.
