Who needs a backflow preventer?

Backflow preventers will be required if an actual or potential hazard for a cross-connection exists. A few examples of hazards include:

  • Commercial and Residential Irrigation Systems
  • Fire Sprinkler Systems
  • Medical Facilities
  • Processing Plants

Modern Electric Water Company will determine which type of protection is required based on the degree of hazard that the property represents to the drinking water supply.
