Backflow Information

The Elk County Water District operates a state-mandated Backflow Prevention Program to prevent drinking water contamination.

Backflow is a serious public health issue when drinking water is connected to a non-drinking water source, a cross connection.  Backflow Prevention Assemblies are required at customer service connection points where a potential or actual cross-connection exists.  Each assembly is tested when installed and annually thereafter. Costs of this inspection are the responsibility of the water customer.
