PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT – CROSS CONNECTION SURVEYS
Surveys of all commercial water customers and some multi-unit residential customers will begin for City of Americus in July 2011. The purpose of the inspections is to update the City of Americus Cross Connection Control program. The surveys involve inspections of each property in order to determine the hazard level of the location and whether sufficient backflow protection is in place. Based on prioritization of building use hazard levels, commercial properties will be inspected first, followed by multi-unit residential buildings.
