Cross-Connection Control and Backflow Prevention

Resident Resources
City Hall

Backflow is defined as the undesirable reversal of flow of water or mixtures of water and other liquids, gases or other substances into the City’s water system. These situations can introduce pollutants and contaminants into a public or private water supply when a change in pressure is experienced. These pollutants and contaminants can present health hazards to the residents that utilize the potable water supply.


To ensure that your drinking water is safe and protected, the City of Fair Oaks Ranch is proposing the creation of a Cross-Connection Control and Backflow Prevention program. See important program dates below.
