This Program is responsible for oversight of the tracking and notification of Point of Service (external) backflow protection devices in Sacramento County.
The purpose of a backflow device is to protect the public health by preventing the flow of any unwanted material back into the Public Drinking Water systems. This includes devices such as backflow prevention assemblies for fire systems, irrigation applications and commercial buildings. Any external backflow device that is required to be installed is required to be tested annually.
