A backflow prevention device (also known as a Cross Connection Device) is a valve that is installed between a boiler and the city main water intake. Its purpose is to prevent boiler water from back flowing into the city water supply. Backflow prevention devices are mandatory in Alberta and must be tested annually by a trained and certified technician. Failure to comply may result in a violation ticket, a water service cut-off and/or summary conviction as outlined in the Water Utility Bylaw.
