What are some examples of cross connections?

A hose is submerged in polluted or contaminated water • A secondary source of irrigation water (from a well or pond) is pumped into an irrigation system that is directly connected to the potable water supply system • A heating boiler with treatment chemical added to prevent internal corrosion is connected directly to the water supply for make-up water • An underground lawn sprinkler system is directly connected to the water supply system • A fountain or swimming pool has a direct connection with the water system for filling

Davie County Public Utilities is required by law to provide safe potable water to customers at all times. In order to ensure that contamination does not enter into the distribution system all backflow prevention devices must be tested annually.
