Water-Backflow Testing

State Required Backflow Testing

Testing Is Required Annually by October 1st. 

Failure to comply with annual testing requirements will result in regulatory action and suspension of water service pending compliance.

To protect the community’s drinking water system from harmful contaminants, State law and District Rules and Regulations require customers with identified backflow preventer assemblies to have those backflow prevention assemblies tested.  The results need to be submitted to the District annually. In consideration of our local Colorado weather, backflow prevention assemblies must be tested, and the final passing results submitted no later than October 1st of each calendar year.
