Backflow

      Water purveyors like the Plainview Water District have the responsibility to supply clean, safe potable water to their customers. In the exercise of this responsibility, the Plainview Water District must implement, administer, and maintain ongoing backflow prevention and cross-connection control programs to protect the public water system from the hazards originating on the premises of their customers and from temporary connections that may impair or alter the quality of the water in the public water system. The return of any water to the public water system after the water has been used for any purpose on the customer’s premises or within the customer’s piping system is unacceptable.

     In addition to the above, the Plainview Water District Board of Commissioners has adopted the Article VII of the Ordinances regarding its cross-connection control program. It is the policy of the Water District to protect the public water system by containing potential contamination within the premises of the user. Consumers are required to follow the applicable provisions of the New York State Sanitary Code, as well as the requirements set forth in the Department's Cross Connection Control Handbook and all applicable federal, state and local regulatory requirements.
