It also mandates the establishment of TDD/telephone relay services. (See Mississippi American Disabilities Act link)
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. Backflow Prevention assemblies provide that protection and must be tested at least annually. (See MS State Department of Health (MSDH) link).
For Businesses & Industries requiring the Backflow assembly test the maintenance report form must be submitted annually with your business and/or privilege license. For qualified tester please see The MSDH Bureaus of Public Water Supply (Backflow Prevention Assembly Tester (BPAT) list).
