Beaumont-Cherry Valley Water District is committed to providing safe, reliable drinking water to the community. One of the ways we protect our supply is by ensuring water is not contaminated by backflow from private properties into the BCVWD system. Some properties within the District’s service area are required to have backflow prevention devices. Properties requiring backflow protection could have one device, and others may need more than one. Customers are responsible for professionally installing backflow prevention devices, maintaining them and replacing them if needed.
To start, it is a good idea to download a copy of the Backflow Guide:
The Beaumont-Cherry Valley Water District Cross-Connection Control Program (CCCP) has been designed in accordance with Titles 17 and 22 of the California Code of Regulations and includes cross-connection surveys, annual testing requirements, on-site and tester audits, mailed notifications, and required reporting.
Depending on your unique situation, you will need to follow the instructions located on the following links:
NOT SURE IF YOU HAVE OR NEED A BACKFLOW DEVICE?
You will be contacted by a cross-connection specialist to get additional information about your property and to schedule an on-site visit. If an appointment is needed, it will be scheduled during the normal business hours of the District main office. After the cross-connection survey is complete, you will be contacted in writing with the findings, along with installation information.
