Cross Connection and Backflow Prevention Program in the Almonte Ward

In October of 2011, Municipal Council provided endorsement for the roll out of a risk based Cross Connection and Backflow Prevention Program in the Almonte Ward.

This program was developed under recommendation by the Ontario Ministry of Environment to better protect the public water system from the risk of contamination from private plumbing systems.  

The Municipality currently has a cross connection control bylaw which was adopted in July of 2004. Bylaw 04-41 presently regulates water connections linked to the public water supply and requires that all residential, commercial, industrial and institutional properties are fitted with appropriate premises isolation. The aim of this bylaw is to ensure backflow doesn't occur from unprotected cross-connections in area plumbing systems.

The cross connection control bylaw makes property owners responsible for identifying all cross-connections in their building, submitting to cross-connection surveys, and installing and maintaining all backflow prevention devices.
