Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Ontario’s Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) posted on the Environmental Registry, March 24, 2015, notice that the final version of A Guide for Drinking Water System Owners Seeking To Undertake a Backflow Prevention Program has been released. The notice was first posted April 25, 2014 to consult with the public on the proposed guide. The final guide provides comprehensive information and suggested approaches that drinking water system owners/operators voluntarily seeking to undertake a backflow prevention program could use. The guide addresses aspects pertinent to the design of water treatment units and cross-connection control considerations that may help safeguard drinking water consumers in a more standardized and consistent manner and thus further strengthen the drinking water safety net.

This document contains lots of great information that would be useful for members across the country. Download it from the Ontario government webpage.
