CCC Facility Hazard Assessment and Inspection Services

Our inspectors identify and record actual or potential cross connections in piping systems that could pose a threat to the drinking water system(s). An electronic survey is completed in the field using our custom designed FAST mobile software. An electronic report is provided of each facility indicating the type and location of each cross connection, the degree of hazard and the appropriate recommended level of protection required to eliminate or control each cross connection. All existing backflow preventers identified are inventoried and documented in FAST.
Completed surveys can then be distributed to the utility and to facility owners to ensure identified hazards are acknowledged and rectified within the scope of the municipalities CCC Program requirements.
