An Inspector from the Amherstburg Building Department will conduct a survey of all Industrial, Commercial, Institutional and some multi-residential properties to determine what action, if any, is required to bring these properties into compliance with the Cross Connection Control By-law.
Each property owner will be notified in writing of any action that may be required and a reasonable amount of time will be given in order to complete the necessary work.
|Installation and Annual Testing of Backflow Prevention Devices|
The installation of testable backflow prevention devices will require a plumbing permit from the Amherstburg Building Department. A copy of the Permit application is on the "Forms" page of this web site.
Some types of backflow prevention devices require annual testing to ensure that they are operating properly. A copy of the Device Test Report is available on the "Forms" page of this web site. If your property requires the installation of a testable backflow prevention device, you will be notified by the Town each year, prior to your annual testing date. A permit is not required for the testing of Backflow Preventers.
Please note that the Cross Connection Control By-law allows only plumbers who are Cross Connection Control Specialists to install and test backflow prevention devices. A list of contractors who are qualified to install and test backflow prevention devices can be found on the page entiled "Contractors".
