Who is responsible for testing and maintaining the backflow assembly?

It is the sole responsibility of the customer to ensure that the assembly is always in satisfactory operating condition. The City’s Cross Connection Control Program will send a courtesy notice when annual testing is due. You are required to schedule testing with a certified tester, who will submit the results on your behalf. If any repair work or maintenance is performed on the assembly, a certified tester must retest the assembly immediately and submit the results. Contact the Cross Connection Control Program at 928-213-2475 for instruction on how to submit the backflow prevention assembly test result.
