IDAHO BACKFLOW PREVENTION PROGRAM
Most homes and many businesses are required to have properly installed backflow prevention assemblies -- mechanical
devices that prevent contaminants and chemicals from entering the potable water supply. If there is backflow at your home, you
could contaminate your drinking water with non-treated water from an irrigation canal or water pooled around a sprinkler head that has
fertilizer on it. Click here for more about backflow.
If you have a sprinkler system installed at your home, you are required by Idaho State Drinking Water regulations
(IDAPA 58.01.08.552.6) and the Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC 603.3.3) to have an approved backflow assembly like the one pictured to the
left installed and annually inspected.
