Who is responsible for the testing and maintenance of the backflow assembly?

 It is the sole responsibility of the water customer to ensure their assembly is in satisfactory operating condition at all times. A notice of the annual test due date will be issued to the water customer of record by our third party contractor, BSI, 60-days prior to the annual due date. The customer must contact a certified Backflow Assembly Tester to perform the test. If any repair work or maintenance is performed on the assembly, a certified Tester must retest the assembly immediately and submit the test results to BSI.
