Cross Connection Control and Backflow Prevention Program
Nebraska’s Safe Drinking Water Act requires public water systems to implement an on-going cross connection control program. An important part of this program is public education. It is believed that a well informed public will be more aware of the possibility of cross connections within their property and will take reasonable and sensible precautions to avoid creating cross connections on their property.
