backflow preventionColorado Springs Utilities (CSU) recently issued a reminder to its customers that they must have backflow prevention tested annually. Testing must be completed by October 1, before irrigation systems are winterized. 

The utility issued the following announcement on their web site:

Annual testing records for all customers with a Utilities tracked backflow prevention assembly are due no later than October 1, 2019. If we do not receive test results on or before this date, customers will be placed in an enforcement process. Notices of Violation will be mailed to customers on or after October 4, 2019. Once a Notice of Violation is sent, the customer has 20 days from the letter date to submit test results. If test results are not received by this date, an Imminent Hazard Order will be delivered to the customer and owner. The customer and/or owner has 10 days after the date of the Imminent Hazard Order to come into compliance before water service will be suspended.

Irrigation systems must be tested each year prior to winterizing. Starting in 2019, irrigation customers will not be given an extension to test and any irrigation water service suspended as a result of non-compliance will not be returned to service until testing is scheduled.
