CROSS-CONNECTION CONTROL PROGRAM (CCP)
Safeguarding our drinking water is everyone's responsibility. Cross connections between water supplies and sources of contamination represent one of the most significant threats to health in the water supply industry.
The City of Pitt Meadows is committed to providing our citizens with safe, reliable drinking water in accordance with the Drinking Water Protection Act, and has implemented a Cross-Connection Control Program (CCP). The CCP ensures the delivery of safe drinking water by eliminating actual and/or potential cross connections within the City's water distribution system by requiring the installation of approved backflow prevention devices on private and/or public properties.
The standard operating policies and backflow prevention unit selection, installation, testing and maintenance practises and procedures for the CCP are set out in the City of Pitt Meadows Cross-ConnectionControl Policy No. F-21.

Currently, the City is in the process of assessing all water service connections to determine their compliance with backflow requirements, as well as the property owner's installation obligations. Program implementation is focused on the high and severe hazard water use properties first, including agriculture and industry.
