**Lawn sprinkler systems that have a connection to the drinking water service lines must have a backflow assembly installed which has to be tested every year. Check Idaho Public Drinking Water Rules or the Plumbing Code and its amendments as adopted by the State of Idaho for regulations.
Falls Water Co., Inc. has an active Cross Connection Control Program in place which directs us to survey all of our water customers annually, keep records of all tests on testable backflow preventers, and issue a reminder notice when testing is due. The customer shall provide access for inspection and testing by water system personnel at all reasonable times to determine whether cross connections, sanitary hazards or other violations of the Cross Connection Control Program exist.
Thank you. This survey will help prevent accidental contamination of our drinking water system.
