PCWA works diligently to deliver safe and reliable drinking water to its customers. This effort begins with protecting our water supply sources and continues through the entire conveyance, treatment and distribution process until the water reaches the meter. The prevention of backflow into the public water supply is an integral part of ensuring safe drinking water.
In accordance with the requirements of the California Administrative code, Title 17, Chapter V, Sections 7583-7605, PCWA requires backflow protection on any treated water service with the potential for contamination of the public water supply.
