What is a Cross Connection Control Program?
A Cross Connection Control Program is an organized and structured program to identify and eliminate unprotected cross connections in order to prevent backflow. It is a cooperative effort between the City of Durango’s Water Treatment Plant, health officials, property owners, and certified testers to ensure that our water is protected both in the city main and within buildings.
