Cross Connection Testing of Businesses
The City of Kalamazoo will be coming into Parchment beginning on November 1 to perform inspections on businesses for backflow prevention. This is a month long project that is required by EGLE guidelines and coincides with the State of MI Plumbing Codes. Only commercial and industrial properties will be tested at this time. Businesses without proper backflow prevention will be required to purchase a device that will protect the water supply from contamination.
In 2020, business owners will be reminded, by letter in May, to have an inspection of their cross connection. Qualified inspectors will be listed in the letter and results must be sent by the business owner to: firstname.lastname@example.org
No residential testing will be performed at this time.
