Back-Flow Prevention


The Mississippi State Department of Health requires that cities help keep public water clean, it must be isolated from undesirable reversal of water flow or mixtures of water with liquids, gases or toxic health hazard substances into the distribution of the potable water system. Back-flow Prevention assemblies provide that protection and must be tested at least annually.

For Businesses and Industries requiring the Back-flow assembly test the maintenance report form must be submitted annually with your business and/or privilege license. For qualified tester please see The Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) Bureaus of Public Water Supply (Back-flow Prevention Assembly Tester (BPAT) list).
