Backflow and Cross Connection Control Program
New Program Information & Reminders
The Fort Worth Water Department is changing its procedures associated with the initial testing of backflow assemblies. Starting September 10, 2012 the department will no longer perform the initial tests of backflow assemblies. These must now be performed by a city registered and certified Backflow Prevention Assembly Tester (BPAT).
The change applies to newly installed, replaced, relocated, or removed backflow assemblies associated with the following:
- Commercial Facilities
- Residential Facilities When Applicable
- Irrigation (Commercial and Residential)
Note: backflow assemblies must be tested by a registered tester prior to requesting an inspection. Incomplete, inaccurate and /or illegible test forms will be considered invalid and will result in a failed inspection.
All registered testers are independent contractors and are not associated with the City of Fort Worth. Contact the Cross Connection Control Section (817.392.8375) for a complete list of registered testers or click here.
