Cross Connection Control & Backflow Assembly

In order to protect the City of Bainbridge Island water supply, the City established a Cross-Connection Control Program codified in the Bainbridge Island Municipal Code (BIMC) Chapter 13.20 and in accordance with the Washington Administrative Code (WAC) 246-290-490.  These state and local laws require the City to have all premises surveyed by a licensed cross connection specialist to assess any hazards that may be present.

Drinking water is used for a variety of purposes including non-potable uses such as lawn irrigation, fire suppression and industrial processes. These different uses can result in possible contamination of potable drinking water if not properly protected by a backflow prevention assembly.

Customers can choose between two types of Cross Connection Control Programs to ensure they are in compliance with BIMC 13.20 and State requirements:
