Water damage is a terrible thing to go through; however, it helps to know that Plumbers FL Services will be there quickly and efficiently when needed. Christian and Carlos make a great team. They are friendly, polite, and hard working. They are a credit to the Plumbers FL, and I’m glad they were here to help me. Thank you Christian and Carlos and the Plumbers FL crew. I always call Plumbers FL, and recommend their services to neighbors and friends. Thank you.
We have used Plumbers Florida many times in the past. The technicians are always pleasant, professional and do outstanding work. Our last experience was with William who went above and beyond our expectations. His communication skills and advise were spot on. As well as just a really, really nice man!!!
The intent of the Cross Connection Control Program is to protect the City’s water system from coming in contact with any contaminate that may enter into the water distribution system. The most common form of system contamination is from cross connections.
Over the years, water treatment processes have become more complex in an effort to provide the highest quality water possible to the water utilities customers. The protection of the water sources, rivers, wells, and lakes, combined with new water treatment procedures, enable the water purveyor to achieve this goal.
A cross connection, as defined by the Cross Connection Control Committee of the Pacific Northwest (PNW) Section or the American Water Works Association (AWWA), is “Any actual or potential physical connection between a potable water line and any pipe, vessel, or machine containing a non-potable fluid or has the possibility of containing a non-potable fluid, solid or gas, such that it is possible for the non-potable fluid, solid or gas to enter the potable water system by backflow.”
The City of Kennewick monitors and controls over 1,800 backflow preventers that protect the potable water system. One of the tasks of the Cross Connect Program is to routinely inspect irrigation systems and commercial buildings to identify potential and actual cross connections. Another task of the program is to advise the owners on how to properly eliminate or control the cross connection using the most cost effective methods. The water customer is required to ensure that these devices are operated, maintained, and tested in accordance with the City’s Cross Connection Control Regulations.
