City Water Backflow Testing Schedule

City Press Releases Get Informed

GRANTS PASS – The City of Grants Pass is reminding city water customers that water backflow testing has begun. Wherever the city’s public water system connects with a private customer system, the city requires a proper backflow prevention device.

Backflow in the form of back siphonage and/or backpressure can allow contaminated water and other undesirable liquids from homes and businesses to enter the public water system. Backflow prevention devices block this from occurring. These various approved devices have internal seals, springs, and moving parts that can wear out over time. The law requires that these devices be inspected and tested every year.

Precision Backflow is the city’s approved testing contractor. Members of their team have begun the annual testing process in the northwest portion of town and Sequoia Village. Contractors have official city identification badges and their vehicles are appropriately labeled.

The schedule of testing will include Northeast Grants Pass in May and June, the Southeast in June, and the Southwest in July and Aug.

For additional information call Precision Backflow at: (541)916-5253.

Customers with questions or concerns can contact Heidi Drinkworth at the City of Grants Pass Water Distribution Division at: (541)450-6115.
