Cross Connection Control Program

The Village of Summit is dedicated to providing water to your home that is safe and clean. An important part of this is ensuring the effective control of cross connections. A cross connection is a point where your water supply pipe comes into contact with a source that could contaminate the water. Lawn irrigation systems, fire sprinklers, hot tubs/spas and in ground pools are examples of cross connections. If left unprotected, cross connections can allow contaminants or pollutants to enter the water system through “backflow”. Backflow occurs when a drop in water pressure causes water to flow in the opposite direction, increasing the potential for contaminated water to flow back into the system. To ensure the integrity of the water supply, the Village has established a Cross Connection Control program in compliance with Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) requirements. Backflow Solutions, Inc. is a professional service company contracted by the Village to inspect the water supply and assist in the maintenance of this program. Your participation in a comprehensive survey of the water system will help determine where cross connections exist. Please file your survey report online at https://backflow.com/summit/.  Alternatively, you may complete download the pdf form and fax it to 888-414-4990. By working together and cooperating in this critical program, we can further protect our water from potential contamination. If you have any questions, please contact Backflow Solutions, Inc at 800-414-4990.
