Backflow Prevention

Backflow devices are an integral part of the City’s Cross Connection Control Program. They help to ensure that no contaminants of any kind (chemicals, debris, reclaimed water, etc.) enter the potable water system. 

Backflow devices are owned by the customer and regulated by the State through the City of Buellton.  While it is primarily business customers who are required to have these devices, some residential properties need them, also.

The State of California Department of Health Services provides regulations for the City and our customers through California Code of Regulations, Title 17. These regulations spell out the types of services that require backflow devices.  Test sheet
