The Mississippi State Department of Health requires that cities help keep public water clean; it must be isolated from undesirable reversals of water flow or mixtures of water with liquids, gases, or toxic health-hazard substances in 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 testers, please see The Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) Bureaus of Public Water Supply (Back-flow Prevention Assembly Tester (BPAT) list).
